Fabric Type : 100% cotton heavy weight Japanese sashiko style jacquard fabric with a puckered or crinkled effect. This fabric is woven on specialized jacquard looms to recreate traditional Japanese sashiko fabric. The fabric of this shirt has been running-stitched with indigo thread on jacquard base fabric to create vertical striped patterns. Sashiko (little stabs or little pierce), a Japanese traditional running stitch technique, is originally used to reinforce fabric, but was also highly valued for its decorative beauty. Sashiko fabric is known for its unmatched durability, and is widely used in protective gear for Judo, Kendo, and Aikido arts. This fabric has an uneven surface and ruggedly texture from cotton fibers. It combines the toughness and the natural softness for comfort. And this shirt is washed once for the fashionable vintage feel and look. Pre washed, minimal shrinkage. And the fabric will develop a comfortable feeling and continue to get softer and cozier through repeated wear. And the more you wear, the more denim will fade beautifully.
