Wearable or perhaps best used as a wonderful artistic display of a classic Japanese folk textile garment.

We have washed, Ironed this garment.

It's ready to wear or display. Can be worn standard or reversed, either way beautiful.
Comments Wonderful example of the Japanese traditional concept of "mottainai" or the distaste of wasting anything which has useful life remaining resulting in the prolonging a garment's life by relentless boro patching and repairing.
