Description
 
"Sune Ate Set 2" Vintage Shin Guards

These were an unusual find!

Sune ate sometimes refers to the armored shin guards that samurai wore into battle, but the ones listed here are the farming version.

Using simple ties, these little pieces of cloth covered the shins of Japanese farmers to protect themselves and their clothing from thorns and branches as they worked the fields.

This is a pair in black and brown stripes with ties. Significant discoloration on one. They are valuable for their story, as a pattern for making your own, or for the cotton they're made from.
