S__4800576

The NIPPON MADE series, with a proud line of Japanese artisanship, brings you a new model made with the traditional Japanese Yumihaha-Gasuri(弓浜絣) method of Tottori Prefecture.

Yumigahama, in the western part of Tottori Prefecture, is the birthplace of the woven fabric technique of Yumihaha-Gasuri. The fabric has dyed fibers which, when woven together, create a special pattern. The very soul of the textile artisans comes through in the strongly-woven colorful patterns, while the rough texture betrays its warm simplicity.
Onitsuka Tiger’s flagship MEXICO 66 DELUXE and MEXICO MID RUNNER DELUXE were used as the design base for this special artisanal work.
