MITTAN / Okazaki Cotton Shirt Pine Smoke SH-62B / 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.
This is a 100% cotton shirt. Due to the dead stock fabric, it will be produced and sold as long as it is currently in stock. Uses the fabric for the obi that was handed down from Mr. Akio Tanaka, a master indigo stencil dyer. This fabric is woven for dyeing in Okazaki City, Aichi Prefecture, and is for traditional indigo dyeing and stencil dyeing, and has a fluffy texture unique to old-fashioned shuttle looms. If it's easy to imagine and dare to compare it, it's a thickness and density close to Oxford. I think it's thick enough to be worn all year round except for summer.
The shape is the same as "Cuddy shirt SH-03". The small collar and cuffs make it easy to match with traditional clothes that are not too much of a "clothes". The shape makes it easy to match with cardigans and pullovers, as well as being the main character by itself. The bodice has a slightly loose pattern, so you can open the button and put it on, and you can use it everyday without hesitation in terms of material and stitching. This fabric also seems to age beautifully.

[Handling and care]
*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.

*Frequently Asked Questions/Supplementary Comments*
・You can see the list of colors of the same type from the #product name at the beginning of the introduction.
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.
