Katazome Hemp Noragi

365.00

This is a noragi, or farmer's jacket, made of indigo dyed hemp. 

The cloth used in this jacket was first created using a rice paste and stencil technique known as katazome. There are two separate and complimentary patterns used within the garment created with this method.

What is perhaps more striking is that, at some point, the entire garment was lightly over-dying with indigo filling in the original patterns with pale blue. It is possible that this may have been the original intent of the garment maker, though oftentimes a garment would be over-dyed if the lighter areas became soiled or darkened. In any case we feel this is a marvelous end result. and can see it was well cared for. It is in pristine condition with no rips, tears, or stains.
