Material - Recycled Cotton
After a thorough investigation of what using recycled material means in all aspects, Taiyo is so very proud to introduce recycled cotton knit. The mill we chose, Toki Sen, functions on a policy of “symbiosis with nature,” meaning they manufacture with ecological considerations and promotion of oil removal. The mill is a member of BCP (Better Cotton Platform).
They use TSURI knitting machines that move in a slow ticking motion to produce old fashioned, high-quality stitches, weaving air into the fabric which gives you an incredibly soft and beautiful texture that is impossible to reproduce on modern-day machines. This traditional method has been slowly developed over a hundred years with thought and intention and with great attention to detail.
Toki Sen uses “fallen cotton” which means they use old clothing such as secondhand clothing or cutting wastage and return it to a raw cotton form. The making process of the newly recycled fabric has a very low carbon footprint as the result is a combination of experienced artisan’ skill and the traditional Japanese techniques use and refer to as “slow vintage.”
