This light cotton Kasuri jacket is simple, without pockets or ties, probably meant to be worn open as work or house clothes. Kasuri, a traditional Japanese fabric, derived from the word “kasureru” meaning “blurred” is created using individually dyed threads that are skillfully woven into the patterns you see here.
Boro is a utilitarian material. Originally a product of the working class (the farmers, craftsmen, and artists) it represents a time when everything including a scrap of fabric was precious. Born from a period when Japan closed its ports to foreign goods, fabrics like cotton became extremely precious and rare. These materials were saved and repurposed from each generation to the next.
Carefully selected and imported from Japan, this vintage product is truly one of a kind. Once it is sold, no other will be in the same style. This product belongs solely to you.
