it’s about how it’s made
who made it and
what it’s made from
Our craftsmen go to the source to adapt the country's deeply rooted artisan skills and try to be as detail-oriented as possible about learning what makes Japanese craft perfect. We uphold the notion of respecting the material and bringing out its unique qualities by working with “care” and “thoughtfulness,” paralleling the demand for respect for nature.
We have learned to listen, to see, and to touch in order to tailor the beautiful t-shirt. It’s a lifetime of using our senses to perfect how the garment feels to another person. In every t-shirt we create, we leave a part of our curiosity, our discoveries, our visions and that’s the great satisfaction of craftsmanship for us.
Cottongin packaging illustrates the way this care and consideration are embodied in the aesthetic choices regarding discrete items, such as the Japanese washi paper chosen for a box surface or the almost seamless scent you can feel while interacting with the package.
Сottongin packaging is made from 100% recycled cardboard where each layer is exclusively shaped and gathered by hand, it provides an aesthetic experience by inviting the recipient to take care and time in unwrapping it.Made as a book with a hardcover and elastic closure its surface is covered with traditional Japanese washi paper that gives a dense and warm feeling, much like textile, thick plain-weave wool with a napped surface. Washi paper is commonly used in shoji, paper sliding doors used in traditional Japanese architecture to create a calm and warm ambiance. The almost seamless scent you can feel while interacting with the package was exclusively created for Cottongin. This scent is the thing that wraps all together. Clear and simple, free of extravagance package is a way of expressing care for the t-shirt inside.
