The fabric for this t-shirt is produced from cotton that is compressed and transported in bales, before slowly being aged for 30 to 50 days in a temperature and humidity-controlled room to restore its original fluffy cotton fibers.
Special yarns spun from this cotton are knitted on a hanging knitting machine in Wakayama, Japan. It is said that only one meter of yarn can be knitted per hour on these machines, which is a time-consuming and labor-intensive process.
Although producing this fabric is inefficient and only yields limited quantities, the result is a soft and moist feel, thicker than jersey, and less stretchy hang-knit fabric. The silhouette is also taken into consideration, and although the fabric is knitted on a hanging knitting machine, the t-shirt itself features side seams.
The original faded pocket print featured on this tee is created by using a four-color (or CMYK) screen printing process. The level of detail is achieved by separating the image into four ink colors (cyan, magenta, yellow and black), and separate screens are prepared for each. The colors are printed one by one onto the tee using a screen printing press, blending and overlapping to faithfully recreate the original image.
