Indigo boro jackets: “I’ve always been really into farm clothing, things old French farmers might wear. I’ve also getting into quilts and other handicrafts lately. These are actually farmers’ jackets from a region in northern Japan, probably made in the late 19th century, and they embody the whole functional aspect of workwear. They’re from a region where it’s hard to grow cotton, so many of them are made from hemp and indigo, and a lot of times these quilting techniques have been passed down throughout families for generations.”
