This maekake apron is decorated with the world’s most well-known Japanese work of art, "The Great Wave" by Katsushika Hokusai. This product is also sold at the British Museum.


Maekake is a traditional apron that has been used since the Edo period.
It serves to protect the body by tightening the hip bones.
Our maekake aprons are woven using a 100-year-old Toyota-made shuttle loom.

Materials: 100% Cotton
Dimensions: Apron – 67 cm x 47 cm (including fringe) / Belt – 260cm (suitable for waist sizes up to 95cm)

Instructions for Care:

  • Do not use bleach or fabric softener.
  • Do not tumble dry.
  • Do not wash in warm water.
  • Wash separately from whites as the dye may transfer onto other fabrics. May shrink slightly after wash due to the nature of the fabric.
