Sakiori work vest
Indigo patterned fabrics went into the weft of the cloth for this vest, which shows a variegated pattern of white on a dark-blue ground.  The neck binding is newer than the body of the vest; the other narrow bindings are probably original.  A striking vest, and very strong.  (Closer view of weave below.)
The vest measures about 22 1/2" wide and is about 34" from shoulder to bottom edge.  There is no localized wear, holes, or patches.
$750. postpaid and insured to US addresses.
