Applying a fabric with a rich history in Japanese culture to this piece, known as Sashiko (刺し子, directly translates as 'little stabs'), the indigo dyed cotton base of the fabric has undyed white cotton yarns running in parallel lines throughout. Sashiko was historically a sewing technique used to repair well worn sections of traditional kimonos and workwear, but early on was adopted as a way of also decorating patterns on garments.

Momotaro's latest Indigo Sashiko shirt is everything you'd want from a winter shirt. Heavy as hell, and built meticulously to last, this is one of finest examples of quality construction coming from the Momotaro camp this season.
