This version of Studio D'Artisan's sashiko work shirt uses their original "Noragi Kasuri" sashiko fabric, which is woven using a jaqcuard weave to accentuate the absurd levels of texture and detail found in this shirt. This fabric uses threads that are dyed with a special Japanese dye that originated in Niigata, which
is called spec-dyeing in some places. This spec-dyeing technique is characterized by the fact that it creates patches and mottled colours in the fibers, similar to kasuri-zome (In Japan, Kasuri refers to fabric that has been dyed into patterns).

This is a handmade fabric, to the extent that the beautifully irregular texture, colour, and craftmanship throughout the piece comes from the skilled labour of a Japanese craftsperson with expertise in sashiko. The hand-stitched sashiko threads that adorn the fabric alternate in their directions and types of stitch, which results in an authentic feeling handmade fabric from the hands of a skilled craftsperson.

The shirt is stitched and finished prior to rinsing and shrinking it, which creates further texture and irregularity due to the tension between the weave and the sashiko stitching that has been added, creating some really interesting fabric texture and subtle rippling in areas. The shirt is finished with large, flat, and round nut buttons that take the shirt to the next level.
