Ready to wear, or historical or artistic display.

We have washed, Ironed & repaired several loose seams on this garment.
Comments Wonderful example of the Japanese tradition of "mottainai" or the distaste of wasting anything which has useful life remaining and in this case, prolonging a garment's endurance by relentless boro patching.

Very nice group of different period indigo cotton patterns compose this garment.

Several fabric layers throughout.
