The fabric is carefully dyed using Indigo dye, famous around the world as "Japan Blue", that ages very well and gives the jacket a vintage feel.

A fabric retaining heat, but even lighter!
The Sashiko fabric has the property to be warm and thick but it used to be at the cost of its weight being a little heavy. Not anymore! After a first launch in Japan and a lot of feedback, the fabric has been entirely rethought to keep the heat without losing its light weight! A feat that was only made possible by using the latest looms and will be exclusive to kickstarter during the launch of the revamped jacket!
