Worn by most Japanese soldiers under their uniforms for good luck in battle. These were to protect the wear from injury and death.

This variant is interesting in that the thousand stitches are encased in an exterior covering, possibly to protect the stitches from coming undone.

These are technically called “Thousand Person Stitches” These were initiated by a female family member at home and then by standing on the street and getting female passers-by to make a stitch until 1000 stitches were made.

They were also made by groups of women and school girls to be sent to men who did not have one.
