About Our Sizing Information

 

*Whew... Finally, I can release information of this jacket. I would say this jacket represent the Keiko's Sashiko Design. I believe nobody can imitate this. Keiko patch-worked many pieces of old fabrics and created the jacket. The process requires incredible design sense of Sashiko and patchworking. This is THE work by Keiko.

 

It is rare to get the large Kofu (Old Fabric) enough to make a whole jacket. Sashiko artists have difficult time to make a big piece because they cannot get enough good materials especially because pieces of Kofu is pretty small. Sometime it can be a size of our palms. More challenging situation would be a piece of Kofu with 2 meter length but 10cm width. What kind of arts can we make out of these fragments?

Keiko has experience and knowledge to make these fragements into the fantastic big piece of fabric, and create the Jacket. It is more than wonderful, I would say. It is miracle that Keiko bring dead fabric (sometimes piece of junk) to something beautiful and meaningful.

 

Keiko once said...:

「This jacket might be too powerful to me. It doesn't fit me perfectly, I feel. However, this jacket will shine when "the right person" wear that, I believe. This could be the one for someone who is waiting this jacket.」

 

*****   *****     *****     ******

Well... I would be quolified to wear this. It won't fit me... as well. I don't have much enough life-experience to make this jacket shine one me. Usually, we as human being choose the cloth. I wonder it might be an interesting idea if a Jacket choose the person to be worn.

 

Here are three close-up photos.

Enjoy the harmony of Sashiko and beautiful pieces of Old Fabric (which used to be a just piece of fabric.)
