Since the start of this line, I've been working almost exclusively with Japanese fabrics, because the textile mills there, with generations of experience in weaving cotton, offer unparalleled quality. While adhering to the world's highest standards for organic certification, the Japanese mills are able to create gorgeous fabrics from organic cotton, ranging from stiff, heavy denim to suiting-weight plaids to feather-light shirting — all while mills I've spoken to in other countries have shrugged off organic as impossible to work with because of its short fibers. The craftsmanship and traditional knowledge in Japan are simply irreplaceable, and yet the whole country's future is at stake due to the terrible earthquake two weeks ago.
