Japan Blue Indigo "YEN" Sashiko Shorts

Size Guide
Layers of texture with layers of indigo!

The sashiko fabric originates from the Japanese farm workwear worn on the fields! The sashiko fabric features an extra durable property but with long term usage, minor areas of wear would be patched. After decades of usage, farmer gears would end up with a patchwork like look made up of various fabrics and patterns. This is what the discharge printed pattern is inspired by.

With time the indigo-dyed sashiko fabric will slowly fade to a lighter shade with soft contrast against the discharge printed pattern. The raised vertical threads will also brighten to highlights with time adding beautiful depth to the overall texture.

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

If you're after some amazingly detailed shorts that will fade to a soulful look with time, these are for you!
