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 a little flamboyant zhooshing, this generous scarf adds airy volume and drama, or may be folded for a flatter profile. The fabric will gain softness and a waffle-like texture with wear and gentle washing, to provide a lightweight layer on cool days.

For a narrower wrap, try the caya reversible scarf.
