The BIWA COTTON used in our tee shirts is based on the ‘Steteco' cloth created in the Edo period (-1800s) in Takashima City, Shiga Prefecture.
Steteco, (‘sutete iko’), was the onomatopeic riff sung by naughty dancers prancing around the red district of Yoshiwara in the Edo period; the dancers would wear mid-calf long johns, made of a light-textured cotton to keep the body cool and comfortable during the highly humid Japanese summers.
BIWA COTTON evolved directly from the original Steteco fabric to suit a more modern clothing style.
About BIWA COTTON 1)
Made of 100% Organic Cotton.
About BIWA COTTON 2)
Small gaps are woven into the fabric warp creating a ventilating effect between clothes and body. Thus the ‘refreshing’ effect permeates the fabric with a cool feeling.
About BIWA COTTON 3)
Although made with cotton exclusively, the ‘gap’ weaving technique brings no stress to the fabric, and allows BIWA COTTON a gentle stretch for a light fit, comfort and longevity.
