To truly appreciate the passionate dedication and quality standards of Samurai Jeans, you must feel and try on one of their "Japanese Cotton" Slub Yarn Pocket T-Shirts.

The cotton for these T-shirts comes from the annual harvest of their own small cotton farm in Sasayama, Hyogo. The thick and especially irregular 'Japanese cotton' yarns are transformed in Wakayama into an impressive 16oz tubular knit fabric with unparalleled depth and texture.

To achieve the beautiful black tone Kuromame, Samurai uses black soybeans sourced locally from Sasayama. The juice of these black beans, which is typically discarded, is ingeniously used as a natural dye to create a truly unique, organic, and eco-friendly black color.

The Samurai Cotton Project

The Samurai Cotton Project has set its sights on revitalizing traditional methods of 100% organic and domestic clothing production. By personally cultivating and hand-harvesting cotton, they are dedicated to creating garments of exceptional quality. However, this undertaking presents significant challenges in practice.

During the 1970s, Japan experienced a significant decline in cotton production, resulting in a heavy reliance on imported cotton. The utilization of modern production techniques, which relied on chemicals, raised concerns about health and environmental contamination.

Aligned with the principles of "making things in Japan, for Japan, in the Japanese way," the project strives to revive the sense of pride associated with traditional craftsmanship and pass down these invaluable techniques to future generations.

The project's commitment extends well beyond a single generation, aiming to reintroduce sustainable practices that uphold values of tradition, quality, and environmental well-being. Through the Samurai Cotton Project, they are actively redefining the landscape of clothing production and consumption.
