MITTAN×PINT / scrap patchwork / cotton linen / 130×130cm
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.
MITTAN and PINT have many overlapping thoughts and ideas, such as "modern folk costumes", "modern folk tools", "use of materials suitable for tools", and "standard craftsmanship". It is a product born from thought.
The scraps that always come out when making clothes. Originally, at MITTAN, we made stoles and mini towels using leftover fabric as patchwork. Sharing this method and leftover fabric, we cut and sew with PINT with the image of the size and patchwork pattern that can be used in the interior scene. Since the cutting is also done by hand according to the scraps, there are differences in the expression due to individual differences in the fabric, the orientation of the fabric, and the size of the scraps, so there are large individual differences.
We used to have jackets and pants made of this cotton linen fabric, but they are now discontinued and we don't have any for sale.
High-density hemp cotton fabric woven on a shuttle loom in Hamamatsu. The high-density tension and the yarn-dyed color are attractive fabrics. The shopkeeper has been wearing these pants for about three years, and although they are not heavy, they have a good tension due to the thread density, and it is a fun fabric to grow. The dyed color and the yarn-dyed look are also very good. Even with a single navy color, there are some shades of color due to different dyeing lots, and the difference in the vertical and horizontal orientation of the fabric makes it possible to enjoy the expression of the fabric even with a plain patchwork.
A patchwork pattern made by cutting the remnants of clothes that are produced and arranging them in blocks. The size is approximately 130cm x 130cm. The fabric is sewn from uncut fabric, and the edges are also left as they are. Please note that if friction occurs in the sewing area, the thread will fall off for a while. However, in order to reinforce the sewn part and prevent the thread from falling off, the same thread as the sewing is used to double machine stitch the entire circumference. (The photo is an old specification, so there is no double sewing machine stitch.)
It is thicker and heavier than Khadi fabric, so you can lay it down or hang it. At the PINT store, I use curtain clips to hang it as a fitting room curtain. (Use 1.5 sheets of 130 x 130 cm photo adjusted to portrait size)
Some customers sew the upper part and use it as a noren. Please feel free to use it.
There are several types of fabric. The size and shape of the remnants vary depending on the clothes I make, and I cut them to minimize the amount of fabric left over, so I change the patchwork pattern for each fabric.

*Some differences may occur due to the manufacturing method.
*This patchwork pattern does not accept size orders due to the pattern and manufacturing method.
[Handling and care]
*The edges of the fabric are cut off. Please note that the thread will fall off for a while. Of course, if you don't hang it or move it while it's hanging, it will hardly fall off, so we recommend this way of using it.

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.
