This is a traditional, cotton apron which is of a type worn all over Japan, even to this day.
Aprons of this type advertise a local business, in this case it is a livestock feed company located in a town in Aichi prefecture, near Nagoya.
The apron is fringed at the bottom and the apron is lightly worn. The tie is in good condition and this piece is still very wearable.
