ban inoue : caya smock in indigo


Feather light with a soft, ballooning volume to match, this short, artfully proportioned top gathers gently into clever pleated sleeves. With a boat neck which slips on easily overhead, the caya smock makes a more considered alternative to a basic tee, and may be worn over a simple singlet or layered with stretchy long sleeves underneath.

colour : indigo
materials : 100% caya cotton

washing & care : this fine, net-like textile is woven from pure cotton and stiffened with natural plant starches for presentation. You can expect its texture to become incredibly soft and waffle-ish with wear and washing, as shown in the last picture. caya can be machine washed in cold water on a gentle cycle (a laundry bag will help prevent snags) but should not be tumble dried.

measurements :
• length 58cm
• width 52cm

* model height is 167cm

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 textiles to take focus. Still traditionally woven to this day, caya 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.
