Antique Japanese Boro Momohiki Work Pants—Wonderful Textures
An excellent example of boro momohiki work pants. Well worn and mended throughout the years, with dense sashiko stitching and hand woven indigo cottons. The proper outside is a tattered and beautiful faded indigo with wonderful textures. The inside, seen in the first set of photographs here, is strikingly different with many layers of indigo cotton in various shades.
This is a tremendous example of Japanese boro, with some very rich, ragged details and a dense visual landscape of old cloth. A highlight of our current collection.
MId to late 1800s
Dimensions: Roughly 25 x 35in; 63 x 89cm
