Sashiko Gatsby Button Down - 4 months of wear
Our Sashiko Gatsby Button Down shirt is made with 14oz sashiko fabric and thanks to the grand indigo thread dye you can see some amazing ageing.
Before & after!
With 2-3 days per week of wear, you can really see the texture becoming enhanced.
The raised fibres of the Sashiko fabric gradually fade a lighter shade of indigo and creates a strong variation in the vertical texture. The lower fibres of the sashiko maintain a rich grand indigo tone.
More soulful with use
Areas of wear such as pockets and placket gain more character with repetitive use making up for some unique fade highlights.
The cuffs always see frequent use due to 'cuffing up' for hard work... the naturally textured woodgrain buttons are starting to slowly develop more patina and contrast more with the surrounding grand indigo sashiko!
At only 4 months of wear, the fading so far is amazing and no doubt the distant future will be even more amazing!
