SHOPPE OBJECT 2019 SUMMER - SHOWCASE: JAPAN

COTTLE

We are located in Kojima (Kurashiki city, Okayama Prefecture) known as the home of Japanese denim. This area has long thrived through the textile industry, and there are many different yarn sellers, dyers, and factories. We renovated an old textile factory that was built over 120 years ago, into a one-floor gallery/workshop/office providing information about our products and showcasing the source of our inspiration, where ideas are immediately shaped into products. We use many different types of sewing machines to give shape to our ideas.

UNIFORMS MADE IN JAPAN

Our production begins with an encounter with wonderful materials and fabrics. Discovering high-quality fabrics with breathtaking texture and beauty inspires us to create clothing that can be worn every day. Our aim is to create clothing that is loved and worn for many years with beauty that comes with time. We deliver a unique style that incorporates the traditional Japanese aesthetic, cultural values, and the beauty of the four seasons, making it everyone’s favorite garment.

DAILY TOTE BAG

This canvas tote bag is dyed with persimmon tannin known as “Kakishibuzome” in Japan. The handle and bottom side of the bag use denim processed with leather expressions for durability and water repellency. The smooth texture and colors are intensified with time.

ZEN COAT

A light-weight and highly-functional coat with organic material. We use high-quality, washable wool generally used in comforters. ? The padding is inserted by hand in the same way comforters are made

MOTHER SASHIKO TRAVELING JACKET

A Jacket curved around the sleeves. The body length is longer than a standard jacket. The expression of Indigo-colored sashiko fabrics will change beautifully with time. The button is made of a gold-seamed silver-lipped pearl oyster.
