West Japan Navy Nep
NOK 1.599,00 kr
Made in Portugal
The Japan Navy Nep is made from a beautiful nep fabric woven by the Japanese fabric mill, Maruwa. This particular fabric has a conventional twill weave construction but is especially unique due to its characteristic nep yarns that pops out of the surface of the fabric. Caused by using a technique called loom chatter. This technique is employed during the weaving process to help make the fabric more textured. In this particular case the shuttle looms are set at a low speed, making the loom literally shake while they weave. Leaving a "snowy" looking surface, that is actually broken cotton fibers caused by the loom agitating the fibers during the weaving process.

Love & Care
Turn inside out, and carefully follow the washing instructions attached to the garment. Wash with similar colours without any fabric softener.

Hand wash is always recommended for minimal shrinkage and damage to the material.
