No.1 Plethora Atelier work coat - Natural
The Plethora Garment Project is a extension of the studio’s careful research into the world of natural pigments and a conceptual case study expanding into collaborations with skilful makers of the highest quality natural garment and artisans of natural dye techniques spanning from Japan to Denmark.
The result is a unique and timeless capsule collection of unisex styles and unique pieces based on premium high-density Kurashiki canvas (the world’s finest canvas quality) woven on traditional vintage shuttle loom machines in Okayama, Japan and hereafter dyed by the ancient doro- zome mud-dye techniques of master craftsman Kanai Kougei on Amami Island, Japan and by the unique natural plant dye techniques of Cæcilie Parfelt Vengberg using botanic dyes from plants exclusively grown in the local Danish soil.
All styles are unisex and designed for a clean yet comfortable oversized fit and every possible attention to detail in collaboration with Japanese brand Arthur and designer Rihei Arthur Sato.
Materials: Soft premium Kurashiki canvas made from organic cotton, undyed. Abalone bottons.
Style: Unisex, oversize fit.

KURASHIKI NATURAL CANVAS / All basic fabrics for the Plethora Garment Project are developed in collaboration with the Takeyari weavers of Okayama – producers of premium, high-density, organic Kurashiki cotton canvas since 1888.

All styles are unisex and designed for a clean yet comfortable oversized fit and every possible attention to detail by designer Rihei Arthur Sato - with special features such as custom abelone buttons, reinforced trims and seems for extra durability, and a careful development of canvas for feel and usage.
