This women's indigo cotton hippari farmers jacket has a charming light blue floral motif geometric kasuri 絣 (ikat) pattern in dark navy blue. The jacket, typical of Japanese folkwear, is slightly starched and will soften after a couple of hand washes in cold water. The sleeves are about half-length and the width of the cuff is about 10 cm.

The jacket has a wrap-over front with a tie closure inside and has rubber band at the cuff. It has 8 cm slits at the bottom of both sides.

Aoi is a lovely piece with a warm folk feeling. It will make a great casual jacket with jeans or any other items!

It has certain wear and other flaws including holes in the lining. Please check detail photos and 'Extra Images'. This hippari jacket has a sense of use, but it is an amazing piece to enjoy folk textile of Japan!
