Japan Blue Merges Japanese Textile Crafts With Its Asanoha Sashiko Short

Japan Blue has spliced the Japanese stitch craft of sashiko with traditional geometric Kimono pattern, Asanoha, for its Asanoha Sashiko Short. It’s unlikely that these shorts will ever fit into an ensemble as elegant as a full kimono, but these ancient Japanese details add charm and flair to an otherwise standard pair of 10″ shorts.

Pair these 100% cotton shorts with a white t-shirt or button-down and you’re good to go, because the pattern and construction of these shorts will make the most simple of summer fits pop. Details include a UNIVERSAL Japan Gold Zipper fly, hidden fifth pocket slit for your keys, and a resin top-button closure.
