This is a Miyako Jofu Kimono with rustic and fine Kasuri
pattern, which is woven with double ikat technique.
It is hand plied in Miyako island, and called Miyako Jofu.
Textile is thin sleek asa (ramie) with surprisingly light and refreshing touch.
The collar is bachi-eri(folded collar).
It was hand-sewn.
There is no 'Ishikiate'(square piece of reinforcement cloth) attached inside.
There are small holes on the left front panel and the cuffs.(B)
There are slight signs of wear on the collar, white stains.
For the details, please refer to the photos and sheet.
Unfortunately, it may no longer in wearable condition due to the holes.
However, it is still such a refreshing and cool piece which we would like you to enjoy.
*In Japanese, 'asa' includes below three kinds of material. You must feel it strange that 'linen' is included.
'Taima' = Hemp
'Karamushi','Choma' = Ramie
'Ama' = Linen
