Loop & Weft - New and Recent items

We recently received some new t-shirts from Loop & Weft and now have all items, including our past shipment items uploaded to the webstore. A little background on the label, Loop & Weft is a one-man brand who moved his family from Osaka Japan to the mountains of Yamanashi Prefecture so that he could reside with the craftsmen there that for many years have been producing cut-and-sew garments of the highest quality. When developing their original knit fabrics Loop & Weft use only the best organic cottons the world has to offer (which makes up about 1% of all cotton production in the world) together with low impact yarn dyeing, as well as incorporating into some of the fabrics the use of organic and natural dyes, and loopwheel knitting machines. All items are Made in Japan using 100% organic recycled cotton and once washed for comfort. More detailed information on these and each of our new products below.

A note from Loop & Weft on their original Recycled Organic Cotton fabric:

"During the fabric weaving process, cotton fibers are expelled from the suspended circular knitting machines. We recycle these fibers then exquisitely blend them with the naturally brown organic cotton. By reusing this run-off we avoid wastefulness of precious cotton tufts, simultaneously creating an ingredient that adds “slubbiness” and density to our newly developed fabric. The random shape of recycled fibers mixed into the threads results in a natural unevenly textured fabric. As you wear it over time, your t-shirt will gradually reveal the infinite softness of its fabric, and contour to the shape of your body."

LOC1003 - Loopwheel Crew Neck T-Shirt / 100% Organic Recycled Cotton / Color: Natural / $118. The unique armhole construction of this t-shirt allows for better movement as well as a flattering fit.

LOH1004 - Loopwheel 3/4 Raglan Sleeve Henley Neck Tee / 100% Organic Recycled Cotton / Color: Natural / $145.  A vintage Union Special 36200 flat seamer sewing machine is used throughout the construction of this henley t-shirt, and the custom horizontal knit sleeve cuffs will retain their shape over years of wear.
