Samurai have pulled out all the stops this season to conjure up this truly one-of-a-kind fabric for F/W 2021. Starting out with a unique checkered stitch pattern with a 3D texture, the combination of Kasuri dyed Natural Indigo yarns result in the immensely streaky pattern seen throughout this hat. In this particular case, the Ai-Kōshi (Indigo Plaid) version of the hat has the undyed yarns featured both in the warp and weft, further accentuating the texture of the unique 3D check pattern of the hat.

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 developed during the reign of the Ryukyu Kingdom (modern-day Okinawa), around 1200AD. Traditional Japanese fabrics have been produced with these techniques for centuries by highly skilled artisans and is a renowned and revered material for the Japanese.
