Why is Poplin Shirt Good for Summer?

Have you ever heard that you should wear a Poplin Shirt in Summer? In this article, we will talk about what is a Poplin Shirt and why it is good to wear one in the Summer day.

There are different ways to weave cotton, like Oxford, Twill, Dobby or Herringbone. Poplin is one of them and it is also called broadcloth. For a poplin shirt, the cotton is densely woven in criss-cross shape. This pattern gives the shirt strength but is also very thin and lightweight at the same time. They also have a soft silky touch. The cross shape also allows better air circulation and keeps you cooler in a hot Summer day. It also serves as a good work shirt as it has little sheen, which gives a more professional look.

Organic Cotton 101

What is organic cotton? Why is it related to you? In this article, we will talk about some basic knowledge about it.

 

To make it simple, organic cotton refers to cotton that will bring less harm to the environments. It requires an organic production system. It must retain soil fertility without using toxic fertilizer. Furthermore, it must not contain genetically engineered seed for organic farming. When it comes to harvesting, farmers will use natural defoliation method like freezing temperature or water management instead of using toxic chemicals.

 

As a result, fabrics made with organic cotton are safe to wear as they do not contain toxic chemicals. Also, it makes them softer in texture. And you are also supporting fair trade by using organic cotton as it is required that organic farmers should be working in a safe and non-abusive environment with reasonable living wages.

 

In fact, there is a rise in the use of organic cotton. According to the survey conducted by Textile Exchange (2016), there is an average 10% yearly increase in production. Also, more than 40% of the surveyed brands choose to use organic cotton or a mix of organic cotton. They also include some of the big names in the market.

 

As for ANDJOY, we love organic products. Taking the Copenhagen based forét as example, their clothes are made with 100% organic cotton.

Choice of Cotton Matters – Kuro Denim Jacket

This time, we will talk about Kuro denim jacket. And we will start by an interview from HIGHSNOBIETY, a Japanese media.

Kuro Denim designer Mr. Yabashi Tadashi was recently interviewed together with Mr. Atsushi Yamamoto, who manages a denim processing factory in Kojima, Japan.

They have been working together on Kuro’s denim collections for a long time. As they believe that although there are lots of fabrics to make denim products, different processing method will give a different result.

That’s why Kuro’s denim are all dyed and processed in Kojima, the denim city. As it is their own know-how and pride to craft a good denim. And Kuro denim jacket is definitely the product to claim this statement.

Indigo

The denim jacket is hand dyed in the factory in Kojima, which gives it a stunning indigo blue. This raw denim will also fade over time as you wear it.

 

However, what really makes it special is the fabric Kuro chooses – Zimbabwe cotton. Different cotton has different staple length, and the longer is the length, the softer and harrier the fabrics it will produce. Zimbabwe cotton is one of the cotton that has the longest stable length on our planet. Thus, kuro denim jacket is very soft and smooth. However, Zimbabwe cotton is also extremely rare. As they can only be grown by a few number of farmers in South Africa. And they can only harvest by hand every year. As a result, they are not commonly used by denim makers. But obviously, Kuro is not an ordinary denim maker and they never disappoint you.
