Okuso garments these days are extremely hard to find. This is the only boro okusozakkuri that I have seen, and what is amazing about it is its light blue colored patches and detailing. The name of this pale blue indigo is referred to as asagi in Japanese. Asagi is an important word to know if you are serious about Japanese folk textiles as it comes up a lot. What’s even better about these asagi patches is that some of them are katazome, or stencil resist cloth.
