Samurai’s ZERO FABRIC t-shirts are now available in a kuromame dyed “black” color. This new run of tees has been given a long bath in a locally grown kuromame (black soybean) “soup” to achieve this dark charcoal color.

Samurai has done a crazy but beautiful thing.. In 2010 they bought a small farm outside Osaka, Japan, with the hopes they would be able to grow their own cotton with the intention of one day being able to make garments made of their own cotton, as in a truly vertically made garment. After eleven years they've been able to grow enough cotton to make t-shirts and of course they're as beautiful as the story behind them. The cotton is minimally processed in very small batches without the use of any harsh cleaning or whitening agents, also all fractured cotton seeds and all staple lengths are left in the cotton during the carding and spinning process for a truly unique fabric. We can really say we’ve never felt or seen a cotton jersey like this from any company. These are now available in very small numbers at our stores.

The Samurai Cotton Farm even has its own Instagram account: https://www.instagram.com/samurai_cotton_project/
