Kasuri Hanjuban

Regular price $90.00 $0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.

Man's short hanjuban  undergarment.  The body of the garment is indigo dyed kasuri and looks machine woven. Up until the last 30 or 40 years or so  undergarments were  often made made from whatever  was on hand and I'm not sure what they've used for these unusual cotton sleeves. The blue silk han-eri collar is lightly stitched on - this would have been visible at the neckline under the main kimono. We  usually associate kasuri with work clothes but this is an example of how it can also be found in a different, probably urban, setting.  72cm shoulder to hem,,  130cm cuff to cuff.  Mid 20th century.

Price includes GST and regular postage within Australia
