Unknown Manufacturer 005 Vintage Hawaiian Shirt

A snow-capped Mt. Fuji stands tall in the background amid smaller cloud-shrouded peaks, with a small village and shrine in its shadow. This one-way design depicts a countryside in Japan, as a procession meanders through the stark landscape. Pilgrims walk along the lone road that cuts through a rice field, and men carry a kago, a wheelless vehicle used to transport royalty. Generously colored with many shades of each of the shirt’s colors, this fabric was most likely hand-painted, requiring exceptional patience and skill.
