Samurai 11oz "Nippon Cotton" Plain Tee (Kuromame)
As part of Samurai's Cotton Farm collection, these 11oz ultra heavyweight tees are the ultimate in luxury and natural dyeing techniques. Samurai Cotton Farm uses 100% Japanese organic cotton grown by Samurai Jeans in Sasayama City. This 11oz cotton fabric is slowly woven using re-constructed vintage denim machines to produce a highly textured material that is both slubby and neppy.This series showcases traditional Japanese dyeing techniques using natural dyes. The "Kuromame" black colourway uses the juice of black soybeans, a byproduct of the local industry to create a unique eco-friendly, organic dye that will age to an even more soulful look with wash and wear!
This tee features flat-seam construction made with a vintage 1960s Union Special 36200 machine - one of the oldest and rarest in the world! The ribbed collar has been triple-stitched to ensure maximum durability and will retain its shape for many years of wear!
