Wildly well-used 'koshimaki' underskirt of female farmworker with such functional 'boro' patchwork as unintentional abstraction called aesthetic. Especially deterioration of hip part tells the story of how hard the farmer's everyday life was. Directly from Tohoku region as its untouched provenance. Early Showa period, 20th century. approx. 104 x 56cm (40.94 x 22.04in)
