MITTAN / Khadi wide shirt (reinforcement) Matsuen SH-17BH / unisex
MITTAN is based on the concept of "modern folk clothes".
Thread and fabric materials, exploration of dyeing, how to make and deliver, repair and dyeing. It is a brand that looks at the way clothes are made and how they should be, and makes clothes with a consistent thought. The clothes are also made without compromise to the details, and like tools, we make clothes that can be used for a long time.
A wide shirt made from hand-spun and hand-woven Khadi in West Bengal, India. This wide shirt can be worn casually like a shirt-like cardigan, and shows various expressions depending on how you wear it. Khadi wide shirt Unbleached (reinforced) SH-17H is dyed with natural pigment (red iron oxide). The softness increases with each wear. Reinforcement stitches are added to the placket, hem, cuffs, and armholes to increase strength, and at the same time, three-dimensional lines are expressed by shrinkage of cotton thread.
Available in 2 sizes. With a relaxed patterned silhouette, size 1 is for women and size 2 is for men. Please refer to the actual size chart for details. Matsuen (product on this page, gray) wears size 2. The unbleached (white) in the photo is wearing size 1, so please compare.

[Handling and care]
*Because we use hand-woven cloth, there are individual differences in size and texture. Please consider the weave, thread knots, and pilling to be part of the expression. Avoid excessive strain as it is weaker than machine-woven fabrics. We also accept care consultations at any time.
*Natural pigments are fixed with natural rubber, so there is a natural unevenness. In order to avoid color transfer, please refrain from combining with light colors, and be sure to avoid washing with other items for the first 1 or 2 times. Because the product is dyed, the color and size of each item may vary slightly.

MITTAN proposes modern ethnic clothing based on the history of clothing and fabrics that remain in the world.
By reinterpreting the two-dimensional structure and combining it with the original functionality of natural materials, we aim to create long-lasting clothes that are not bound by the transient trends of the times.
MITTAN mainly uses machine-woven textiles from Enshu, Banshu, and Bishu in Japan, as well as hand-woven textiles from Asian countries such as India and Laos.
As much as possible, designers go directly to the machine shop and work on original material development.
In addition, we use mainly cotton thread for sewing threads, and we use natural materials for accessories such as woven labels, quality labels, and buttons, and we sew at partner factories in Japan.
In addition to ordinary dyes, plants, indigo, insects, and minerals are used for dyeing, and the uneven transition of colors is also considered beautiful.
Since the establishment of the brand in 2013, we have continued to repair and re-dye it, and we have continued to develop standard products.
In addition, by continuing to convey the background from various aspects, we will bring back the clothes that have gone away mentally and physically to a more familiar existence and lead to continuous wear.
