||Work jacket of sakiori
|A particularly handsome example of a work
jacket made entirely of sakiori, in this case in a deep indigo with a white thread woven
through every inch or so. The sleeves are made in a modified form of the
"carp's mouth" or koiguchi form to accommodate the heavy fabric. The neck
area is faced in the traditional manner while other edges are finished off with stitching
|The jacket measures about 24" wide and
about 32" from shoulder to bottom edge. The right sleeve has a small unrepaired
hole, but the fabric is otherwise undamaged and strong.
