Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 10, 2007 -
The TAKUMI handcrafted men's collection for Fall/Winter 2008 consists of luxury shirts made from the finest Japanese shirting and premium jeans constructed from artisanal selvage denim woven on an antique wooden shuttle loom in Japan.
Takumi means artisan in Japanese. All of Takumi's clothes are handcrafted in Japan in small numbers by artisans who seek perfection in details.
The line's designer and founder Luis Pedroza was born in Taiwan of Japanese, Chinese and Mexican ancestry. Over the last decade, Luis has worked on many brands throughout Asia and Eastern Europe. With his new line, Luis fuses Japanese textile traditions with his love of European bespoke tailoring and the simple beauty of vintage American denim.
Takumi shirts are made with hand rolled canvas collars, stunning contrast fabric on the cuffs, thick shell buttons, and rich, luxury shirting woven in Japan. The shirts are handcrafted in an artisan workshop in Mobara -- located in the Chiba prefecture of Japan. Only 300 shirts are made in each style. Takumi luxury shirts retail for $198-$225.
Takumi jeans are beautifully constructed from Japanese selvage denim woven on an antique wooden shuttle loom in Ashina-Gun Japan. The jeans are made with old machinery and sewing methods to replicate the quality of jeans made 100 years ago. Takumi jeans retail for $250-$448.
