Early Spring Item and Coordinates UNISEX vol.2

In this feature we focus on our new monthly items of the season from a unique perspective. In vol.1, we shared matching fabric styles and our new spring coats. In vol.2, we will introduce our standard fabrics, sharing examples of styles and the background behind the A&S original fabric development.

Standard fabric series from Arts & Science

Ever since A&S began its original brand back in 2007, we have consistently developed fabrics that can only be produced in Japan. Our concept always starts from the question, “What is aspirational and meaningful in our fabric development?” From this idea, we have created three standard fabric series that express the core of A&S, in material groups of cotton, hemp and linen.
Without compromising on all aspects of fabric development, from raw materials, count of threads, density, structure, loom (machinery), finishing, dyeing, drying, at A&S we manipulate the differences in the count of threads to fix all separate textures. We have created a series of fabrics that can be used throughout the four seasons. Producing these fabrics throughout the year creates sustainability in the work of the craftsmen involved in the entire process. An all-year-round production keeps the techniques held at authentic factories and craftsman strong, as we make a demand to help these skills become passed on down to the next generation. Helping to sustain the production environment is an important part A&S manufacturing.

From our standard fabric series, we are introducing the following cotton and hemp collections releasing this month in March.

〈High count special cotton 40/60/60square〉

High count special cotton (The photo is count 60)

Cotton: The highest-ranked Suvin cotton, carefully selected from India's finest ultra-long cotton Suvin.

This series was created with the concept of creating a strong standard plain cotton fabric that expresses the A&S philosophy. As we excavated this idea on how to make basic cotton fabrics, the range of development gradually expanded from thick counts to ultra-fine counts, where nine types of standard expressions are now possible. Only single yarns are used in the process made from hand- spinning, and delicate loosely twisted ply. Today, the number of shuttle looms used in manufacturing is decreasing, and few skilled weavers have the skills to make the fine adjustments to weave them.
In 21SS, High count special cotton 40 is used for outerwear and pants, and for count 60 is used for shirts and pants. You can feel the differences in texture by comparing the cottons when touched.
Special cotton 60 square is a square standard (square = meaning the density / the same number of vertical and horizontal lines) developed to enable a tougher level of support, and since because the density of the cotton is not high, the outcome is supple and light, so it is used in our shirting. We hope you can appreciate and experience the subtle differences in the fabric series made from the same ingredients.

〈High count fine hemp & High count special fine hemp〉

High count fine hemp

Hemp (cannabis): An annual plant of the family Cannabis native to Central Asia, the raw material is collected from its bast fiber.

In Japan, hemp is said to be the oldest fiber used in cloth material. It is a strong plant, resistant to pests and can be cultivated without using pesticides or chemical fertilizers, while they can grow even on less nourished ground regardless of the climate. It is an ingredient that has been close to humankind in history for its functional purposes.
Today, hemp’s value is attracting a lot of attention for clothing. A&S has been developing fabrics using fine-count hemp for a long time. First, we make a high-count fine hemp with hemp count 60/1 (60-count single yarn), and then we developed a 80/1 the same way. We finally found the technique to make a High count special fine hemp of 100/1 standard with extra fine count, which is known to be the limit for single thread count in hemp. As a result, hemp fabrics are now are a part of A&S's standard plain hemp series, and we were successfully able to create a variation of thickness in fabrics suitable for different styles of wear.
In our 21SS collection, 60/1 is used for jackets, pants and shirts, and 100/1 is used for dresses and blouses. Our item lineup allows you to feel the characteristics and charms of hemp fabric over a wide range of products.
