A traditional fabric for the modern age.
Shinaori, the oldest textile in Japan.
Strands of bark from the linden tree are spun to create Shinaori, one of Japan’s oldest fabrics.
The ancient Japanese, who lived in harmony with nature, used this fabric as clothing, fishing nets, and grain bags.
The completely hands-on process begins with stripping the bark, and takes about one year to final product.
In such a high-paced society, we feel that a material purposely made by hand is the height of luxury.
