Japanese Indigo Workman Jacket
This product is currently sold out.
The practice of indigo dying was brought to Japan from India via the Silk Road in the 6th or 7th century. Indigo fabrics were originally worn by the Samurai and Japanese aristocracy. As the dying process became more prevalent, the Japanese developed a deep love and understanding of the dye and how to use it. This 100% cotton indigo ripstop is no exception. We get the fabric raw and in narrow goods from a mill near Hiroshima. Then we give it a light rinse wash to bring out a hint of the blue variations which will develop and fade over time as you wear it.
