Using a traditional noragi farmer's jacket as a base design, we provided Mutsu about 80% to 90% of the vintage boro fabric used for this piece. He then combines these fabrics with indigo African textiles to create the beautiful layers and patches you see here. Sashiko stitching can be found throughout the jacket making it not only stylish but sturdy as well. Watch how this jacket was made down below!
As a special treat, Mutsu also created this concept illustration for us through the art of stippling. Check out his process below.
