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 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 effortless and naturally comfortable clothing.

This gently a-line dress has generous volume and seamless, dolman-style sleeves which come to a gather at the elbow. Due to the light nature of this textile, you might want to layer a fine slip underneath, or simply pop on overhead and maintain your cool while those round you wilt!
