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 in white.
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.
$750. postpaid and insured to US addresses.
