Cut from superior cloth, new for 2021 is Samurai's Indigo Sashiko heat. Developed from scratch by the team at Samurai, Indigo yarns that have been tediously dyed using the traditional kasezome method, and woven meticulously to yield the sashiko stitch pattern throughout! With a fitted work shirt pattern serving as the silhouette, the look has been kept rugged with work-style pockets, metal buttons, and the inclusion of the extended collar tab.
Kasezome is the art of skein dyeing, a hand dyeing method by wrapping undyed yarns into a loose coil and dipping them into a vat of Indigo (in this instance). The yarns are dyed to the core while still retaining their original texture, a feat only possible when the yarns are meticulously dyed by hand.
Samurai are releasing this normally store limited "Honten" series piece (made exclusively for their brick & mortar in Osaka) to be made available online.
