This jacket is made of a fabric dyed with indigo using a technique called katazome.
Katazome is a traditional Japanese textile dyeing technique that involves stenciling designs onto fabric using a paste resist made from rice flour or soybean paste. The resist is applied to the fabric through a stencil, and then the fabric is dyed. After dyeing, the resist is removed, revealing the desired pattern.
It is about 100 years old, and the lining is also made of plain indigo-dyed cloth.
It was probably used by farmers on a daily basis.It is in good condition with some damage but has a vintage feel to it.
