Circa 1900-1950's Vintage BORO Noragi - Cotton Indigo Ikat Kasuri Woven Vest (No-sleeve kimono)

Boro is a traditional Japanese patchwork and mending technique that has its roots in frugality and sustainability. The word "boro" itself means "rags" or "tatters." It originated among the peasant and working-class communities in Japan, particularly during the Edo period (17th to 19th centuries) and continued into the early 20th century.

This Boro Noragi Vest can be reversible. You can solo enjoy the indigo blue stripes side too.
Hand made, hand sewn in Japan.

"Noragi - 野良着" is known as traditional farmer's workwear in Japan. It typically consists of durable, comfortable clothing suitable for agricultural labour, often made from natural materials like cotton or hemp. These garments are designed to provide ease of movement and protection while working in the fields, and they reflect the practical and functional aspects of traditional Japanese farming attire.
