MITTAN / Silk Hanging Cloth Small Light Gray SC-45
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.
As the name suggests, it is made from MITTAN's original fabric , which is inspired by cloth that resonates both visually and on the skin . Blankets, stoles and mufflers can be used freely indoors or outdoors. There are two sizes, large and small, and in addition to indoor use such as sofas and beds, the small can also be used as a stole or shawl. It is a jacquard weave that combines 14 different patterns, and the appearance and impression of the pattern changes depending on how it is used and how it is folded.
The weft uses silk spun yarn made from recycled cotton and scraps, and the warp yarn is made by twisting silk spun yarn and a blend of silk and flax, resulting in a light and smooth texture that is not heavy for the area. The fabric is soft yet has a waist, and the expression is beautiful when hung or placed.
This small size is easy to use as a stole or shawl, and can be hung on a chair or sofa in the living room. I think it's a fabric that fits perfectly with wood materials. It is a large-sized cloth that can be used freely.
MITTAN's research and commitment to materials has a depth that is close to the realm of research, and it is recommended not only for clothes but also for fabrics that can be used at home.

MITTAN clothes are designed and repaired on the premise that they will be worn for a long time, not just for one season, even when the fabric is worn out. See here for details of the fix.

[Handling and care]
* At the beginning of use, the pills peculiar to silk spun yarn will fall off, but it will calm down after repeated use.
*There are knots and unevenness in the threads that are unique to natural materials. This is because we use raw materials with uneven fiber lengths, focusing on the texture, so please consider it as part of the expression. Be careful not to pull the knots of the thread forcibly, as it may break the threads of the fabric and create holes.

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.
