Loop & Weft Recycled Nep Plating Dot Seam Crewneck Natural T-Shirt Antique Black
Introducing the newest addition to Loop & Weft's collection, the eco-friendly tee. This extraordinary garment is crafted with an ecological mindset, using a unique recycled cotton noil material. By repurposing cotton waste fibers, Loop & Weft has created a 100% cotton fabric known as nep plating. The plating technique involves knitting two threads simultaneously on a single needle, resulting in a smooth back surface and added thickness to the fabric. This construction not only enhances the fabric's durability but also provides excellent stretchability and a rich texture reminiscent of vintage undershirts. As an added bonus, the fabric is finished with natural camellia oil, offering enhanced comfort and demonstrating the brand's commitment to the environment.
The design of this short sleeve crewneck draws inspiration from military undershirts, featuring special stitching techniques and meticulous stitchwork. The collar is crafted using a raw edge inside-out binder construction, while the sleeve cuffs and hem are stitched with three needles to create a contrasting color effect. The side and shoulder seams utilize a single lockstitch technique with short seam allowances, ensuring great stretchability and comfort. The binder on the collar is reversed, creating a unique two-tone dot seam design and rounded edges. These details come together to create a distinctive and detailed design.
The silhouette of this tee is designed for versatility, suitable for both standalone wear and layering as an inner garment. It offers a comfortable and well-balanced regular fit. The dropped back shoulder seams enhance the three-dimensional appearance of the shoulders, providing a better overall fit and visual appeal. This tee combines exceptional craftsmanship with eco-friendly materials, allowing you to enjoy its unique texture and comfortable feel.
For the absolute best of the best, look no further than Japan's Loop & Weft, who have been crafting top-tier tees and knitwear with an artisan's eye for more than a decade. Using rare vintage machines, their pieces undergo a tediously slow knitting process that results in incredibly dense and suspiciously soft fabrics with unique uneven textures derived from the combination of natural and recycled fibres. In their efforts towards eco-conscious production, they use natural dyes with low environmental impact, resulting in coveted, one–of–a–kind pieces with a trademark organic unevenness in colour.
