The silhouette is different from the vintage ones that are still in the market as dead stock. We made the length longer and added a natural curve from the bust to the hem, and made the front length a little longer than the back length to create a sharp looking A-line.
The front length is a little longer than the back length to create a sharp A-line. The sleeves are also made thin enough to fit the modern Japanese body shape.
Characteristics of the fabric
For the cotton, we used a hard and rough raw cotton and spun it using a method (high-twist) that produces a rough feeling, creating an unprecedented uneven 5th count.
For the dyeing, we used 100% indigo to create a darker and darker color.
In order to make it easier to produce a sense of bite, low tension is applied and the fabric is hammered to the limit.
Features of sewing
For the sewing thread, four colors of threads (orange, banana yellow, golden brown, and white) and four different yarn counts (No. 30, No. 20, No. 8, and No. 0) are used in the right places.
The fabric is hot and hard, so a binder is used for wrapping and sewing.
We made a wrapper (binder) for this fabric from scratch, and after many failures, we were able to bring it into mass production.
