This extraordinary sweatshirt is part of the rare and highly curated Samurai Cotton Project collection. Each cotton fiber embodies the ethos of 'Making things in Japan, for Japan, in the Japanese way' – you'll feel it; trust us!

The Cotton Project and the cultivation of their own organic Japanese cotton is the passion project of Samurai Jeans mastermind Nogami-san. The Samurai team assists annually in sowing, cultivating, and hand-picking the cotton on a small farm in Sasayama, Hyogo. The love and effort put into Japanese cotton cultivation are evident in the character of the irregular 10-count cotton yarns, spun in the same way as Samurai's Bushido denim in Wakayama.

The slubby texture, substantial softness, and depth of the garment make this sweat fabric visually distinctive, delightful to wear, and globally unique.

    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.
