Just before the new year, I posted photos of a fantastic, boro yogi–but I just showed its front. Today, I’m showing its other side, which some of you may prefer to the front. For me it’s a toss-up.The layers of hand loomed cotton patches are delicious–as is the variety of cottons used in the mending and reinforcement of this sleeping kimono.
Look at all the different patterns of katazome or stencil resist dyed cloth used in constructing this yogi: clearly whoever made this took delight in applying these patterned patches to this yogi.
I thought this magnificent thing needed a second look. I hope you enjoyed it.
