A Vintage Indigo Yogi Nightwear with Katazome stencil resist dyeing.  This is the outer part of the original old traditional yogi garment.  It was taken apart & cleaned to prep for the remaking use.  Nowadays often artisans will use them to remake jackets or other garments.  The original yogi was heavy and had old cotton stuffing.  It is not so practical for today's use.  You will find vintage nightwear like this that is just the outer layer mostly these days.  In the old days, the Japanese in the countryside would use it as a blanket.  Parents & their children would cuddle and sleep in these types of yogi nightwear.
