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.

This softly gathered skirt with a stretch waist band is simplicity itself- no pockets, buttons or zips distract from its  line and lightweight comfort. Hitting below the knee it complements  a variety of aesthetics, and may be layered with tights and boots for autumn weather or enjoy the breathable caya cloth in warmer climates. Please consult the measurements for  guidance on the size of this Japanese made piece, or contact our team with any questions.
