Antique Hand Woven French Rustic Linen Intricately Inlaid Hand Patch Fabric Made Gilet




A gilet is useful for adding nuance to a plain shirt and pants style, or for adding a touch of class to a jacket outfit.











The gilet is made of hand-sewn patches of several types of French linen woven on manual looms from the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century.











France, which still produces 70% of the world’s flax, is literally a linen powerhouse. Flax is used not only for clothing, but also for home linens such as sheets and bedding, table linens such as tablecloths and napkins, and is the most familiar fiber to French people, more closely related to their daily lives than cotton. It is the most familiar fiber to French people, more closely connected to their lives than cotton.











The rustic fabric woven from such linen on a manual loom has a completely different and powerful look from the delicate Villette used for Biaude, and is full of ruggedness and simplicity that conveys the grit of France, an agricultural powerhouse that is completely different from sophistication and stylishness.











Various ecru and slightly bleached oysters created from different production areas, different fields, and different processing methods until the yarn is spun.











When people hear the word “kinari” in Japan, they often think of the color of unbleached cotton or confuse it with off-white, but originally “kinari” was conceived to describe the ecru of linen and began to be used to describe color, but originally the word was not used for color but for immaturity.










その生地をフランスならではの生地を上から被せて縫い付けるのではなく、くり抜いた部分に接ぎ合わせるように縫い付けモザイク状にpatchしていく“Travile de Patch”で作り出した身頃。

The body is made by “Travile de Patch”, a technique unique to France in which the fabric is not sewn over the top, but is patched in a mosaic-like pattern by sewing it on to the hollowed-out areas.











The inlaid pattern is not a repetition of simple shapes, but an intricate combination of shapes.











PATCH is made of cotton threads with discreet color contrasts, joined with fine hand-stitched blind stitches of around 1.5 mm.











This PATCH could be sewn with a sewing machine and the seams would be beautiful, requiring only one-fifth of the time, but there must be a point to sewing it by hand.











Hand stitched useless pockets.










間隔を詰めて、ずらりと配したボタンは、3種類のbaffalo horn。

The buttons, narrowly spaced and arranged in rows, are three types of baffalo horns.











All buttonholes are also hand-stitched with linen cord.











Unbleached rustic cotton is hand-matted on the reverse side to give a plump look of hand-stitched wrinkles.











The sides and shoulders connecting the front and back are all sewn by hand. This is why the wrinkles are so plump, something that can only be done by hand, and a form of something that can only be done by hand.
