Item Wonderful Hand-Made Indigo Cotton Sakiori Jacket
(Japanese method of rag weaving is called Sakiori)
The upper portion has a solid very faded indigo cotton overlay which we believe was added to protect the sakiori weaving. Perhaps the jacket's owner did some sort to work which required that their shoulder be used in their job and they wanted the area protected, however real purpose unknown.

Solid indigo cotton sleeves, thick fabric, homespun and hand loomed.

All cotton, Home Spun, Hand Loomed

The sakiori rag weave uniquely consists of a variety of indigo indigo pieces & white thick threads, see close up photos.
