Traditionally in Japan, Kimono were worn as everyday clothing with fabrics carefully selected so as to suit the seasonal changes throughout the year. Fabrics ranged greatly, with intricate patterns and dyeing techniques giving each garment a unique look and texture that allowed each wearer to stand out from one another. Fast forward to contemporary times and wearing Kimono has become a luxury reserved only for momentous occasions. Stepping in to revive and breathe new life into these timeless fabrics, SDA have collected deadstock Kimonos from a foregone era and painstakingly created several garments as part of their new "Kimono" series. 

The second of this series, the Kasuri Indigo Shirt features a unique selection of Kimono fabrics which are intricately cut into panels and sewn to form each completed piece. Given that each antique Kimono would only have a set area of fabric suitable for each panel, combined with the unique arrangement for each shirt; no two shirts are the same. 

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 these techniques for centuries by highly skilled artisans, and are a renowned and revered material for the Japanese.
