Good overall condition, but.....

Best used for historical or artistic presentation.

May be worn however.....

The body of this yogi is in very satisfactory condition but the sleeves require considerable patching & mending in order to make this garment completely suitable for wear. We will include sufficient same era fabric and thick sashiko thread with this purchase for the buyer to make repairs to the sleeves. Once the mending has been finished, the owner will be able to wear a much envied Japanese folk textile-garment..

We hand washed & ironed this yogi.
