Momotaro Green Tea Dyed Chambray Shirt and Natural Indigo Dyed Shawl Cardigan


We've picked up two amazing natural dyed pieces from Momotaro for this season. First up is their standard 5oz indigo chambray shirt which has been overdyed with green tea. This gives the whole shirt an earthy green hue, and an amazing smell. The cardigan is a soft loop-wheeled fabric dyed with natural indigo, creating one of the richest and most unique blues in the shop.

This macro shot on the fabric reveals the indigo base of the shirt, but you can see the subtle green tea dye in both the white and blue threads.

Momotaro's shirting uses triple needle construction along all the major seams, creating both a durable shirt and a rugged look.

The shirt comes with a green tea bag from leaves grown in Momotaro's home, Okayama Prefecture.

The shirt features selvedge along the side vents, and chain stitch runoff.

The natural indigo dye creates one of the richest blues we've seen. The color of this cardigan is what makes it stand out in the shop.

The loop-wheeled fabric is a detail we've come to expect from Japan-made sweaters, and this cardigan does not disappoint. The fabric is soft and comfortable, and will only become more so with wear.
