• Product Description

      Cut from hand-dyed linen check woven in Japan - with a large dropped single chest pocket, corozo buttons, french seams, squared cuffs, pointed collar, more pronounced curved hem and ‘invisible’ placket. This shirt is based on the same fit of the Big Shirt - cut more relaxed in the chest with a dropped shoulder and a slightly longer body compared to the Two Pocket Shirt.

      *Due to the natural dye process/over-dyeing method each piece will feature irregularities in shading inherent to this unique process and should be celebrated as such. Please read more about Persimmon Dying process below:

      With a history of more than 1000 years, Persimmon dyeing has always been an important part of Japanese crafts. It was traditionally used to protect the material against water, moth and odor. Fishing net, Sakabukuro ( sake filter ) , Bangasa umbrella, clothes, and even wooden buildings and furniture were coated with persimmon tannin to last for a long time. What also made persimmon dyeing popular was its color fastness - the color doesn’t come off easily like indigo or other natural dyeing. Rather, the color of persimmon gets deeper over time, especially after being exposed to the sunlight, the light brown color will eventually grow to darker, richer brown.

      The persimmon tannin used for this fabric was made using only the locally harvested ”Fuyukaki” ( a kind of astringent persimmon originated in Mizuho, Gifu where the dyeing takes place ). The 100% natural persimmon juice is fermented for a minimum of 3 years before using. From the harvesting of persimmon to the final dyeing process, each and every process is done by hand using no electricity. The juice is thinned out with water by around 10 times, to dye the fabric little by little each time, to get the deeper shade by creating the layers of colors, the fabric dyed this way has much better color fastness and also less stiff. You can also get dark color by using thicker juice with less water but this way the color fastness is bad and also the fabric becomes very stiff. Thats why, to create a long lasting color takes minimum 4 - 5 times of dyeing and drying."
