You might have noticed that Indigo is having a moment right now—again. However, we're apprehensive about labelling the deep blue hand dye a trend, seeing as the process has been around for centuries.
This shirt is unique. It is really unique not only for its indigo hand dyeing but also for the fabric designed with a traditional Japanese pattern called "Yoshiwara Tsunagi". Yoshiwara Tsunagi is a three-dimensional pattern, which resembles squares strung together in a chain. Yoshiwara is the name of a historic red-light district, and it is said that this pattern was used as the shop curtain of a tea shop, where the owner introduced clients to the women. The pattern symbolizes the hard time getting out of the red-light district, just like trying to get out of being chained. On the other hand, this pattern also represents the connections in human relationships and is considered, to this day, a symbol of good luck.
The fantastic texture gives character, while details like black shell cat-eye buttons and a hand-dyeing process make each shirt unique.
Samurai jeans have become a legend in the Japanese denim scene. Created in Osaka by Toru Nogami in 1997, Samurai represents the perfection of Japanese tradition, with its iconography of Sengoku-era Samurais and the search for the best and nothing but the best through materials, artisan garment-making techniques and unique detailing.
