A Japanese variation on the Sanskrit word Kasaya, a Kesa is a Buddhist monk's robe. Noh theaters would donate their threadbare costumes to the monks, who stitched the discarded fabrics together. These recycled robes were both beautiful and humble, representing detachment from worldly things.
Kesa's simple geometric motif is an homage to the simplicity of those early patchwork patterns.
