Sashiko Noragi Kimono/Jacket

Regular price $390.00 $0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.

I think this garment started life as an adult's work jacket but has been taken in at the shoulders to be worn as a child's kimono. Lines of sashiko stitching have been used to join and reinforce a double layer of fabric for warmth and durability.  The outer fabric is indigo dyed with a simple kasuri (ikat) pattern. There's quite a lot of wear especially on the sleeves and a couple of small holes that look like burns.  It is still quite sturdy and suitable for display.  It measures approximately 87cm in length and dates from late 19th - early  20th  century.
