Studio D'Artisan 12oz ”Noragi“ Sashiko S/S Workshirt (Indigo)

Hundreds of years ago, when most Japanese wore cotton-made kimonos every day, they were valuable heirlooms that you can leave to your children and grandchildren. To maintain the quality of cotton-made kimonos over time, the Japanese developed their repairing technique and that is how ‘Nogari Sashiko' started! Today, we would love to introduce you to this lovely Nogari Sashiko work shirt from SDA!

This beautiful 12oz indigo thread-dyed Nogari sashiko is slowly woven from a vintage machine that comes with uneven textures. With time, you'll see this sashiko gradually fade to a lighter shade with many varieties of soft indigo shining out! You’ll feel this shirt becomes like a vintage Nogari sashiko worn over 100 years!

Thanks to the heavyweight sashiko, you can easily wear this one as a jacketed shirt in the warm season! For some tasteful contrast against the fading sashiko, the natural coconut buttons have been added and some beautiful sheen will appear with time!

How We Measure

Pants and Shorts


With the major buttoned up (i.e. the top button) open the jeans and lay them flat, like shown. Measure from the front where the major button closes to the back belt loop. Double this measurement to find the waist measurement.

The way we measure the waist is different from the 'Side to Side' technique. If you are used to the 'side to side' technique you can roughly roughly downsize by 1 inch.

For example, 'side to side' measurement for The Flat Head 3002 waist is 28inch and using our method measures at 29.25inch.

Front Rise:

With the jeans lying flat measure from the crotch bar tack to the top of the waistband. 

Back Rise:

Spread out the crotch so the bar tack is visible, then measure from the crotch to the top of the waistband.


One inch down from the crotch, measure flat across to the other side.


Flatten the leg and measure along the inseam from the crotch to the leg hem. 

Leg Openning:

Measure straight across the hem from side to side.





Lay flat then measure from the shoulder's edge to the other shoulder's edge.


Lay shirt flat and measure from pit to pit.

Sleeve length:

With the sleeve flat measure from the shoulder to the cuff.

Arm hole openning:

Vertical length:

With the shirt facing down, Measure from below the collar to the bottom hem.
