Japan Blue Indigo Dotted Sashiko Shorts

That world-famous fabric inspired by Japan's workwear history.

For those who have never tried sashiko, it's original use was by Japanese farmers in the field who needed durable fabrics! This

JB has specially developed its own version using vintage machines. The raised surface will become light with on-going use and contrast the lowered surfaces thanks to the grand indigo dyed threads.

With a brass zip fly and slanted 5 pocket short design, this is a practical one for those days out.

The overall texture will become enhanced with use making up for a strong vertical pattern.

  • 100% cotton
