colour: light grey

A modern reinterpretation of a traditional Japanese garment (historically worn over the kimono), this versatile haori-style robe shrugs on as a relaxed jacket, or makes a luxurious post-bath wrap at home.

Dropped shoulder seams, bracelet sleeves and straight sides create a naturally nonchalant fit, or belt the jacket for a different look. Two belt loops are made from traditionally woven sanada himo flat cord, and sit just behind the side seams for a hidden decorative detail.


• 100% caya cotton


• length 94cm
• width 57cm


This fine, net-like textile is woven from pure cotton and stiffened with natural plant starches for presentation. With washing and wear, you can expect its texture to become incredibly soft, with a waffle-ish character as shown in the last picture. Caya can be machine washed in cold water on a gentle cycle (a laundry bag will help prevent snags), but should not be tumble dried. Reshape while damp and dry flat in shade.


Ban Inoue

From the beautiful ancient capital Nara, Ban Inoue make breathable garments in simple styles, allowing the soft texture and natural comfort of their textiles to take focus. Still traditionally woven to this day, caya cotton is renowned in Japan for a beauty of near spiritual quality, inspiring poetry and ukiyo-e woodblock prints of the Edo period. Today, Ban Inoue wish to preserve the gentle aesthetic and comfort of caya with contemporary, wearable styles.
