The elegant kasuri pattern shines through. Make this summer a little more special with a stylish outfit.

The delicate vertical striped pattern is impressive. This pattern is called tate-gasuri and is made by tightly winding a skein of yarn with kusuri yarn to prevent the dye from seeping in. The fabric is "Omi Chijimi," which is famous for its hemp fabrics.


The blend of cotton, which excels in sweat absorption, and ramie, which has a cool and refreshing feeling, provides outstanding comfort. The "shibo", unevenness of the fabric, created by Omi's traditional technique complements the kasuri (patterned fabric) and creates a chic look.


It also makes a perfect gift for that person who loves fashion. Please enjoy the luxurious feeling that sets it apart from other samue.

What are Samue?

Samue are a type of traditional Japanese garment. While kimono are formal attire that can be challenging to wear and require various etiquette, samue consist of a jacket and pants that are easy to wear and move around in.Originating as workwear for monks engaging in daily chores, today, samue are popular garments ideal for work and casual wear. Based on functional designs that allow freedom of movement and made from lightweight and comfortable fabrics, Samue can be worn all day long.At Wasuian, we offer various colors and styles, so you're sure to find one that is perfect for you!

Wasuian's Commitment: Backstitching

Wasuian's Samue is made by the backstitching method of traditional Japanese clothing. Although it is somewhat inefficient to manufacture, our samue is sewn at the back, not on the shoulders, with the same relaxed shoulder silhouette as a kimono. Since ancient times, the back seam has been handed down "to prevent evil from entering through the back." This is a unique characteristic of traditional Japanese clothing that we wish to preserve.

Wasuian’s Commitment: The Beauty of the Collar

The collar has always been an essential part of the kimono, as is evident in the idiom "Eri Wo Tadasu" ("straighten the collar"). For our samue, we avoid placing stitches on the front of the collar by using the sophisticated drop stitching technique. It relies on the fingertips to apply the sewing machine to the edge of the collar, just 1 to 2 mm away.Our artisans carefully make every garment by hand. We strive to balance preserving the essence and techniques of traditional Japanese clothing while evolving the designs to match modern lifestyles.
