washing & care : this fine, net-like textile is woven from pure cotton and stiffened with natural plant starches for presentation. You can expect its texture to become incredibly soft and waffle-ish with wear and washing, as shown in the last picture. Kaya can be machine washed in cold water on a gentle cycle (a laundry bag will help prevent snags) but should not be tumble dried.
From the beautiful ancient capital Nara, Ban Inoue make breathable garments and accessories in simple styles, allowing the soft texture and comfort of their natural textiles to take focus. Whether using natural kaya cloth, exceptional linen weaves, or comfortable slab cotton, Ban Inoue seek to preserve the gentle aesthetics and practical properties of all their textiles.
