This Maekake is made of a very special antique fabric, which was woven about 50 years ago.The antique fabric was called 'Garabo'.
The logo of the shop, which existed 50 years ago, is inspired by horse racing. This retro design is made using a paper pattern hand-created over 50 years ago.
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.
