This T–shirt is made primarily from USA cotton produced along the Mississippi River Basin. Using a method known as air spinning, the material is made by spinning cotton thread with a variable width of between 13mm–33mm. This spinning method creates a rough feel and unique crispy texture, since the torque on the outside of the yarn is strong and the inside is weak.
Made in Japan
