Ban Inoue

From the beautiful ancient capital Nara, Ban Inoue make breathable garments in simple styles, allowing the soft texture and natural comfort of their caya cloth to take focus. Caya is a significant Japanese textile woven from pure cotton with a fine, netted structure, which becomes waffle-like with each wash and wear. Traditionally woven in Nara, it is renowned in Japan for a beauty of near spiritual quality, inspiring poetry and ukiyo-e woodblock prints of the Edo period. Today, Ban Inoue wish to preserve the gentle aesthetic and practical properties of caya cloth with their effortless and naturally comfortable clothing.

Ideal for layering over a slip or pants, this slightly A-line , round-necked shift is simplicity itself. Worn as a breathable summer dress for the hottest of days or a beach cover-up, it also pairs with Ban Inoue's elegant caya duster for a relaxed and unstructured approach to dressing up.
