Since the fluff has not been removed by gas firing, etc., it feels a little fuzzy at the beginning of use, but as you continue to use it, the fluff will fall off, and the texture of the fabric will collapse, giving it a glossy feel.

The design is based on an attempt to create a bag that can be used for generations with cotton cloth. There are 3 pockets on the inside, and it is also reversible.

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.
