Item Japanese Farmer Ragged Boro Patchwork Noragi Jacket
Early 1900s
Fabric 100% Cotton.
Natural vegetable dyes. Home Spun, Hand loomed Indigo Fabrics with numerous textile layers in some areas & patches.

Interesting sashiko.
See last image for size.
Note.... Very narrow (slender) shoulder width.

Nice heavy-medium weight:
1.2 lbs, 530 g
Wearable but best used for historical or artistic display.

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