This is very rare Sashiko made in the Hokuriku district in the Meiji era.� The cotton cloth is thick good feel in Hand-spun. There is the design of a diagonal indigo blue stripe on the cloth of white background from the about 16th century, but it is very unusual in Sashiko.It is very unusual, and Sashiko produced with two threads of white and the indigo blue is very unusually special. The farmer wore it to attract attention at the time of festival. There is almost no thing of the same form. It is original to sew in the whole diagonally and hardly reads an example. This had a thin stain of several places, but was hardly worn. There is no damage and the state is complete. It is an item of the Meiji period, but the wearing is possible now.An addendum. The person who wanted to attract attention at the time of festival would wear it. This is not an item for work. The stitch of the thread is characteristic very much. Sashiko was usually closed along a weave linearly. However, this case, this step over the weave, and a thread is sewed diagonally. The part of the thread that the part of the indigo blue thread is white as for the width of the Sashiko pattern is 7cm. It is all W Slade sewing. As for the indigo plant thread, two threads are more strongly twisted. Because a white thread is passed through by white cotton, this is not outstanding, but this will be because it is warped when this part is not sewed. It is the item of the texture that the cotton is spun by hand, and is good. This is in a state having good whole. When the producer intended to do indigo dyeing later, I imagine it. As for this, "it will be with "a good feeling" the change of Kamenozoki]-colored light blue and the slanted line of the indigo plant thread". Rare Sashiko is sometimes born without a traditional thought. Size: 87.5cm x 118cm (34.4 "x46.4")
