About the Product
The "mojiri sleeves" are made by folding a piece of cloth as if it were twisted, and they are functional with design. "Mojiri" are Japanese style sleeves and we made them of striped fabric to give the back a distinctive look. Thick stripes with pre-dyed stripes are used, and we hope you would enjoy its design characterized by “mojiri.” Even with voluminous tops, it can be worn like a shawl without worrying about the sleeves. When folded, the collar can be worn like a "haori (Japanese traditional coat)". When unfolded, it can be worn like an "open cardigan". When you layer the front and fasten it with your belt, it can be worn like an overblouse.
This item is made of yarn-dyed fabric of natural fiber and uses nep yarns (* threads with a knot in the middle that is created when two or more types of threads are used) to create a fabric with a natural texture. It is made of a quick-drying natural material that does not lose its shape even after washing and can be washed and worn every day even in the sweaty season. The natural material is perfect for casual life. You can match this item with a hooded top or a one-piece dress for a one-mile style. It goes well with cotton shirts and cut-and-sew, and can be used as an outer for temperature control when traveling because its washer fabric makes it possible to roll up and carry.
Available in 2 colors, ecru and navy. Since this is an over type jacket, it is unisex one-size-fits-all. Available in short and long lengths. Short people can wear it like a long cardigan, and tall people can wear it like a rough jacket. Please enjoy the stylings.
