Momohiki (peasant / farming / work pants) and maekake (apron) are worn today at traditional festivals (matsuri). Traditionally they were worn by labourers or farmers.

This set dates back to Showa era, perhaps post-war to mid-century.

This apron is an adult size small to medium (approx.) Please check the measurements.
