Just as chefs care about their ingredients, we care about our material Cotton is known as “short-fiber” material, as the fiber length is usually under 25mm. We use extra-long stable cotton from China’s Xinjiang region for our 200/4PLY shirts, with a fiber length of 35 mm or more.
Ultra-fine thread from extra-long staple cotton “200/4 PLY”on the label refers to the thinness of the thread used for the fabric. This special thread is made by twisting four extra-fine yarns of 200 count threads. The delicate, high-density weave of this thread creates a one-of-a-kind fabric.
Unique Coloring + Elegant Gloss = Beautiful Designs The 200/4PLY shirts take advantage of the excellent coloration properties of cotton, combined with the glossy silk-like texture created by using ultrafine yarn. The colors and patterns are all original designs for Kamakura Shirts.
Mother of Pearl ~Natural Shell Buttons~ The natural shell buttons are made using “Mother of Pearl”, a material found in the inner shell of pearl oysters. Each pearl button has a unique shine and luster, adding a little luxury to your everyday shirt.
