Story of the Loop & Weft Vintage Slub Cotton 1930s Raglan Sweatshirt
Loop & Weft Vintage Slub Cotton 1930s Raglan Sweatshirt takes the brand’s ethos of “best knitwear” and applies it to the classic sportswear sweatshirt. Using a fabric inspired by vintage cotton fleece, the sweatshirt comes with a 1930s mock-neck and two needle seam construction. The fabric is backed with a super-soft pile fleece lining which is the softest we’ve had our hands on. The perfect year-round piece that will become a second skin.
The pattern is based on vintage sweatshirts from the early part of the 20th Century and the manufacturing process takes place at a carefully selected workshop Wakayama, Japan, by shokunin, or artisans, who are masters of their craft. Contrasting the old with the new, the custom-made fabric is sewn on vintage Union Special 36200 machines, many of which were imported from the USA during the early part of the 20th century.

About Loop & Weft
Loop & Weft 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.
