Black Sumi Ink Dyed Tee
A classic T-shirt silhouette with a slightly wider and longer body. We created a brand new and very robust material of the highest quality. It’s a slub yarn that intentionally creates thinner and thicker parts to evoke a feeling of hand-spun yarn. This results in a unique look with a lot of texture. We used a count 8 yarn which is really thick for a t-shirt. This sturdy material will withstand countless washes and keep its shape. We used different shades of sumi (Japanese black ink) to rope-dye this fabric which gives it great variations of black shades with lighter grey freckles within. Like all our fabrics, this material is completely made in Japan – spinning, rope dyeing, knitting, and processing are all done in one of our small mills. You can expect great fades with this fabric that we’ve christened GYOTEN (暁天): the night before sunrise. These shirts are built to last to the highest standard in Japan: finished with chunky blue side seams, reinforced black ribs at the neck, and the classic 二 embroidery on the right shoulder.
