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.

With dropped, bracelet length sleeves, straight sides, and two topstitched patch pockets, this lightweight jacket has a boxy cut, softened by the drape of its fabric. The buttonless opening may be shrugged on for a casual summer layer, and the clean collarless neckline makes the perfect foil for a light scarf or statement neckpiece.
