Work vest of sakiori
Made entirely of dark indigo sakiori with a white thread woven through at 3/4" intervals.  The bindings are all indigo cotton, and there are small black cotton reinforcements over the shoulders and across the back applied with running sashiko stitching in blue.
The vest measures 19" wide and 33 1/2" from shoulder to bottom edge.  The sakiori body is in good condition, while the cotton bindings are faded and worn and, around the neck area, torn through.
$725. postpaid and insured to US addresses.
