The Kamigata is our take on the traditional Japanese farmer's jacket. In keeping with its inspiration, it has a banded shawl placket and a square bottom. We've added additional functionality with hip besom pockets, button cuffs, and a hidden interior button that allows you to close the jacket in front. You can wear it with the sleeves down or rolled up. Cuffs open or closed. Button the jacket to wear it like a cardigan or leave it open. This color is a rich medium brown tone with a subtle violet cast.
Our classic pure cotton Sashiko cloth is woven in Japan for use in martial arts uniforms. Known as Dogi (cloth of the way), this fabric has a thick pique weave with well-defined "rice gain" structure. It allows natural stretch and flexing with movement, it absorbs moisture and stays away from your skin and it gains exceptional tensile strength.. far above a comparable twill weave. Given the large texture of the weave, you can expect a nice patina with wear.
Each Sashiko Kamigata begins its journey as a stiff, neutral white garment. It's plunged into an organic reactive dye bath for about 48 hours.. allowing the pigment to entirely soak through its distinctive "rice grain" texture. The soft drape and comfort of this final product cannot be overstated!
