Inspired by traditional Japanese Sakiori, one of our favorite mills has created a unique style to pay respect to this ancient textile practice. This is the Japan Shadow Sakiori 5 Pocket.
Sakiori is a traditional Japanese technique of rag weaving. It's a process whereby scraps of fabric, usually too small to be used alone, are joined together to create a functional textile. Dating back to the 18th century in Japan, Sakiori is a process that focuses on the value of re-use and zero waste. Think of it like a patchwork of very small pieces of varied fabrics carefully stitched together. Colors and texture can all be different. In this case, one of our favorite mills in Japan has deployed a dobby weave to create the unique patchwork effect. It's most pronounced on the backside of the fabric, where you see a rainbow rainbow of different colors and widths, mimicking small pieces of fabric. Slub yarns allow this patchwork to show through the top surface. It's completely different than any fabric we've seen. Indigo dye and a solid 13 ounce weight make it a rugged style that's built to evolve into a truly unique pant.
