Iron Heart - IHSH-380-IND - 12oz Dobby Cloth Work Shirt - Indigo

$ 350.00

Our classic work shirt, made from a 12oz dobby loom woven cloth with Sashiko thread stitching. Dating back to the 17th century, Sashiko is a traditional form of Japanese folk embroidery used for both decorative and functional reinforcement of fabrics. With a translation meaning “little stabs”, the technique involves a running stitch which creates aesthetically pleasing geometric patterns in a piece of cloth, simultaneously reinforcing the weave for added durability. When intertwined with our heavyweight dobby cloth, the result is an incredibly intricate weave with a deeply textured, yet soft and pliable hand. A fabric full of character, the warp threads are indigo rope dyed - meaning that the colour will fade with wear and washing - whilst the weft yarns and Sashiko thread are cheese and reactive dyed respectively and won’t fade.
