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.
Samurai's iteration of the infamous fabric originally worn by Kendo martial artists is of a heavyweight version (as to be expected from the Osaka brand), maximizing durability while still being all sorts of comfortable.
*While there is no concern of shrinkage, this item will bleed due to the Indigo dyed nature of the fabric.
