Fabric Information × Close

Cotton

Takaokaya has more than 50 fabric shades and patterns choices in our collection. Our solid color fabrics specifically are dyed with a special mura-zome dyeing technique, which creates an interesting irregularity of color streaks on the fabrics that are very quintessential of the majority of Takaokaya products.

Linen

The linen used by Takaokaya is called kibira. It is different from normal linen because it is produced using traditional techniques, where the threads are made by cutting the linen stock and soaking it for 1-2 days. This soaking process will not only remove the dirt on the surface of the stock but also splits the stock into fine threads and joint them back together. The presence of the black and white color streaks on the thread on the finished product is due to sun exposure. Parts of the stem which are exposed turns black, while the inner part of the stem produces white threads.
