Kasuri (or 絣) is the Japanese term for a fabric that has a color range of dyed fibers to create patterns and images within a textile. It is similar to Ikat dyeing, a form of resistance dyeing. Ikat is the predecessor to Kasuri techniques and was first develop during the reign of the Ryukyu Kingdom (modern day Okinawa), around 1200AD. Traditional Japanese fabrics have been produced with this techniques for centuries by highly skilled artisans and is a renowned and revered material for the Japanese.
The 6oz. Selvedge fabric is a great all-season weight, and the construction is meticulous with details of double needle chain stitching construction throughout. The selvedge edge has been aptly used running up the inner button placket of the shirt and on the side gussets. The shirt itself is a slim fit with rounded bottom edges and chainstitching along the hem. Beige brushed Mother of Pearl shell snap buttons are used throughout the shirt.
