Samurai X CORLECTION 6.7oz Loopwheeled Tee (Kakishibu)
Exploring the past to bring you guys something new!
Kakishibu natural dyeing is another famous, historical dyeing technique from Japan. As an abundant source of dyeing pigments, centuries ago Kakishibu was used for all kinds of purposes and of course an amazing choice for dyeing fine fabrics.
We've worked with Samurai to create this specially developed tee! This 6.7oz loopwheel fabric is super slowly woven using vintage loopwheel machines, the yarn is overdyed with the traditional Kakishibu hand-dye method. Using natural pigments derived from the persimmon plant, the colour is gradually dyed to achieve a light, unripe persimmon look.
Constructed with a triple stitched, ribbed collar band and extra heavy cotton threads, these will keep their shape longer with wear.
If you've been seeking something unique,this is a very special choice!
