Heading into this spring, we wanted to take two of our most popular styles, the denim work shirt and the banded collar popover, and create a truly unique collection. Our very first choice was to partner with our friends Kiriko in Portland to help us find rare Japanese textiles to implement into our garments. Kiriko is a lifestyle brand that specializes in the sourcing and re-interpretation of rare and vintage Japanese fabrics.
Sashi-ori is a heavyweight fabric traditionally used in Kendo-gi jackets. Kendo is an ancient martial art using wooden swords to practice swordsmanship. We crafted the body of this work shirt from sashi-ori, with raw indigo denim sleeves, chest pockets collar and yoke. This combination created a beautiful, unique and sturdy piece that will only get better with time, as the denim and sashi-ori will fade and break in at different rates.
This denim shirt is raw. Wash separately to avoid color transfer.
