When the fabric of a jacket is supple and soft, even the wrinkles it makes when you put your hands in the pockets look nice.
If there’s a pocket, you bet I’ll have my hands in them whether it is spring or summer, but it feels especially exquisite in the winter.
Even if people say I’m trying to act cool, I don’t mind. I want to walk the streets feeling toasty and warm.
This fabric with beautiful knitwork is apparently woven of a modern version of “Taimafu” hemp cloth.
The history is quite amazing, and knowing it made me want to hold my head up higher as I walked around town.
Setups are made for winter, my outfit of matching top and bottom seemed to say as I was out and about in town that day, and sure enough my friend compliments me, “Hey that’s a nice color. What color is it?”
The elegant coloring with hemp yarn blended in suits this season so well.
I can’t get enough of hoods. Even if it’s not raining or the wind isn’t blowing, I want to go around with the hood over my head.
I love it when a coat has a hood.
The reason I like lightweight coats is that it is easy to wear, but also with this volume, you can wear an inner puffer inside.
I’m going to make great use of it this winter too.
What is majotae?
Material made by <majotae> using modern technology to reproduce “Taimafu,” a natural hemp cloth woven of yarn spun from fibers extracted from hemp, a traditional Japanese plant. The traditional cloth was woven by hand because of the short fibers, but machine spinning using latest technology was made possible. Hand kneading finish gives the fabric a hand-made texture. It dries much faster than cotton and is cool in the summer and warm in the winter. We love such natural functionality and the skin-feel of organic material, and it is now the third season for us to create this original fabric. The fabric is woven in two layers, with a surface of acrylic wool and cotton hemp and polyester back. It gives the fabric a distinct stiffness that creates a three-dimensional silhouette. Contrary to how sturdy it looks, it is amazingly light weight.
