MATERIALS + TECHNOLOGIES
What began as a quest in creating a vintage inspired premium t-shirt, resulted in one of our most desired materials of the season. This luxurious Raw Silk Terry starts its journey from the Japanese Silkworm. This Mulberry leaf fed larvae produces the only natural filament fiber in the world. Combining these fibers with a small percentage of Nylon, we developed a material that offers a multitude of functional benefits including a yarn stronger than cotton, with soft hand and beautiful drape that remains cool in the summer, but insulates warmth when temperatures drop. Combined that with our hand dip-dye techniques and you quickly come to realize…
This might just be your favorite tee.
100% COTTON CREPE JERSEY
The Coastal Crepe collection was developed in the Wakayama Prefecture of Japan, a region known for it’s exceptional knitting heritage and superb quality. We located the softest cotton fibers we could find, and yarn-dyed them in our Canton and Ombre Blue pigments. Ultimately knitting these soft twisted yarns into a fabrication that’s uniquely Matiere.
