Interesting fact: The indigo fabric that was used for this boro jacket was rare of its time found in the Southwest. Not often you would see boro jacket in Shibori fabric. The jacket is also patched with many different types of indigo cotton fabric, the more noticeable ones are such as Tsutsugaki & Katazome fabric patch. Reversible, you can enjoy wearing it both side. Patches were all done by traditional Sashiko hand-stitching by myself through the spend of a week. The Kanji in the patch, stand for "limestone".
