By unusually mended, I mean the long, narrow, vertically oriented mendings that add character to the back of the exterior of this indigo dyed cotton boro noragi, or work coat.They’re strange and beautiful–and there are many of them. I like them. The mendings appear to be like raindrops, or spilled paint–something liquid and randomly placed.This is a real boro jacket in the sense that it shows wear, mending, and more wear: there are unmended areas here and there.
I’ll be offering this coat on my webshop this coming Wednesday.
