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.

A simple sheer layering piece with scoop neck and deep side splits at the hem. With a gentle A-line shape this dress slips on over the head with no buttons or fasteners, making an ideal undergarment, night gown or sheer layer in a creative ensemble.

Please note that this dress is sheer, and would require an under garment or slip to be worn as a dress.
