TANUKI "YUJKT2 16.5OZ NATURAL INDIGO "YURAI" 2ND TYPE JACKET
Our very own interpretation of the Type 2 jacket: slimmer arms, longer torso, the chest pockets sit a bit higher, and practical side pockets. Our YURAI fabric is a sight to behold. After developing a rope-dying method for our natural indigo fabric, which results in rich and intense shades of blue and contrasts which makes it very unique, we wanted to take things further. We created a cobalt blue weft with natural indigo. We created this rich blue by dipping the yarn into natural indigo with shorter exposures to oxygen which results in a lighter blue. The colour reminds us of the Tanuki blue that runs through all of our products: YURAI means source. The denim is rich in slub and fuzziness on the surface and thanks to the loose weave, the cobalt blue peaks through the surface which adds depths to the denim. The electric blue fades will be very unique. The banana and light beige stitching add just the right amount of contrast to this fabric.
