Sakiori sodenashi (vest) whose wefts are recycled strips torn from old cotton kimono, futonji and so on. The warps are asa (hemp). The sakiori textiles were mostly made in the regions along the Japan Sea side where the cold weather made it hard to cultivate cotton. It has beautiful hand stitching (sashiko) in the top of the back, in the shoulders and in the both sides. In excellent condition and looks scarcely worn. Late 19th mid 20th century. 59cm x 91cm
