ban inoue : caya haori in flint
From the beautiful ancient capital Nara, Ban Inoue make breathable garments and accessories 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 lightweight, netted structure, which becomes waffle-like in texture 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 range for home and travel.
A modern reinterpretation of a traditional garment, historically worn over the kimono, this versatile haori shrugs on for nonchalant style, its simple opening creating a clean line without bulk or buttons.
Dropped shoulder seams, bracelet sleeves and straight sides give a naturally relaxed fit, or belt the jacket for a different look. Two belt loops are made from traditionally woven sanada himo flat cord, and sit just behind the haori’s side seams for a hidden decorative detail.
