Sakiori Vest Panels

Regular price $175.00 $0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.

Two panels of traditional sakiori rag weaving in varying shades of indigo  that were intended to be turned into a sodenashi work vest  but never made it that far.  They're made with  spaces for fitting the collar, but of course the panels could be used for something else.  They each  measure 26cm x 156cm . They're  very thick and sturdy and could be edged for making table mats, a bag etc. Sakiori is  usually associated with northern Japan but these are  from the Sada-Misaki peninsular in Ehime prefecture on Shikoku.  There  was a strong sakiori  tradition in Sada-Misaki  up until  around the early post-war period when, like  other folk textile traditions,  it fell out of everyday use.
