This garment is either a very large kimono or a donjya 'sleeping kimono'. It was once heavily lined with cotton for warmth. The white knotted threads that held the quilting in place still remain.

A donjya is a large quilted kimono used to sleep in. It may have been used by one person, or perhaps a couple or small family. They would have gathered inside it together for warmth.

Either way, this is a fantastic Meiji era folk textile made up of various indigo cottons. It is entirely handmade. The cotton is hand loomed and likely hand spun.

The majority is made up of striped kasuri (ikat) cotton. The lines are fine and in some areas the weave has worn away and the plain indigo remains.

Length: 125cm
Collar to cuff: 60cm
Pit to pit: 75cm

Large to extra large. Great to wear loosely as a long over coat.
