Mikawa Momen Sashiko
The Mikawa Momen Sashiko Weave is a weaving technique named after the birthplace of Japan’s oldest cotton fabrics. From very long ago, this weaving technique has been used to make work clothes and clothing worn to practice the traditional Japanese martial art called Judo. During the Edo period, firefighters who rushed to put out fires wore protective clothing made using this technique. The thick, specific weaving texture is resistant to cuts and sparks, and is robust enough to alleviate physical injuries. Therefore, it has been adopted as training clothes for a variety of martial sports as well as uniforms of carpenters and stone masons.
