Loop & Weft is a Japanese brand known for producing the finest knitted and cut-and-sewn cotton goods around. The pieces in the collection are made by carefully chosen shokunin (artisans) from small factories and workshops, all using custom-made original fabrics.
The label was founded in 2011 by Ryota Seguchi, who had spent the previous decade working in the denim industry for one of Japan’s leading denim manufacturers. Ryota’s goal was to produce honestly-crafted pieces made from the best materials to the very highest standards.
The brand is based in Yamanashi Prefecture, a location in the shadow of Mount Fuji that is known for its natural beauty and for being an inspiring artistic setting for creative people. The area also has a historically significant garment manufacturing industry that is particularly known for cut-and-sewn cotton clothing. Loop & Weft aim to continue these strong traditions and contribute to the history of the area by creating beautiful, life-long lasting pieces that will fast become the prized possessions of their owners.
Working with a carefully selected group of shokunin (artisans) from a range of small factories and workshops across Japan, each piece in the collection is manufactured by skilled craftsmen and women who have dedicated their lives to their art. The fabrics used are all original and produced specially for Loop & Weft, resulting in clothes that warm your body as well as warm your soul.
