“KOSHO & CO.” Special Edition “SPIDER” × “ROARING TIGER (HAND PRINT)”
A work from the early to mid-1950s, inspired by spiders that spin webs and wait for their prey in the darkness. The yellow and black stripes on the abdomen indicate that it depicts “golden orb-weaving spider found in Japan. Such "Spider pattern" is extremely rare, and although vintage sukajan often feature spider webs and other elements in the "Skull pattern," this is the only known design that focuses on the spider itself. Notably, the use of embroidery thread colors is remarkable. To ensure the black thread of the spider stands out on the black body, "particular black" thread is used, creating a sense of depth in the composition.

The reversible side has a printed tiger. Not by modern machine, this is printed by hands, so-called “hand-print”, using a technique in which individual prints are made for each color, and then they are manually overlaid and printed. This laborious and time-consuming process results in only a few produced at the time, making surviving pieces extremely rare and highly valuable in the vintage market. This jacket features a combination of two rare designs on both sides, making it a true masterpiece befitting the name of its creator, "Kosho," an originator of sukajan.
