Vintage Boro Noragi, or Indigo Work Jacket
This is an cotton noragi, or Japanese worker's jacket.
Made primarily of indigo dyed cotton, this noragi has hand-stitched sashiko reinforcements added to the shoulders to strengthen and reinforce this area which typically saw a lot of wear. Additional, smaller mends can be seen throughout the inside body of the garment.
We especially enjoy the beautiful symmetrical fading seen on the reverse. In fine condition and suitable for wear.
Dimensions: Sleeve to Sleeve 48.5in (19cm); Shoulder to Hem 28.5in (11cm)
