      Label: Shiga & Co, Kyoto
      Material: Silk Brocade 
      Condition: Good

      This jacket is has not been dry cleaned, as my cleaner hasn't proven trustworthy with detailed brocade pieces. The lighter areas of the silk are, I think, tanned mildly with age. There's a 3" narrow stain on the low center back. There's two spots on the left sleeve. The back of the neck has a frayed area. This is priced with condition in mind.
