mocT Loopwheel Pullover Sweater Gray

€160,00 EUR

Size
  • Arguably one of the best quality sweat-wear that exists
  • Knitted in Japan on vintage 1950s Japanese looms 
  • Made by a company with 130 years of technology and experience

The regular fit sweat crew neck pullover is designed with a slightly looser silhouette so that you can fully feel the luxury of the fabric. 

The "loop-wheel” knitting machine that is used was adopted in Japan in the early 1900’s for manufacturing western style clothing. Most of the Japanese vintage items that we find today was made by this machine. When knitting fabric using loop-wheeling machines, no extra force is applied to the yarn so it retains the softness and unique texture that you have after you wash it. 

Because this machine can only knit about 1 meter of fabric an hour, most factories currently use the latest high-speed knitting machines called "sinker knitting machines" for mass production. MocT sweats however, continues to only use this high grade knitting technique at their factory in Wakayama prefecture, the only factory that is still in operation. In addition, because it uses un-dyed threads, it can be worn and washed repeatedly to give it a softer texture.

The fabric is made of Grey heather yarn, a material with a very soft texture that is widely loved by luxury brands all over the world. The secret of the soft texture, which cannot be reproduced by any type of  dyeing method, in because the cotton is dyed at raw material stage so the soft texture of cotton is maximised. 

Made by a factory that was founded in 1887 and have taken on the challenge of developing various threads.

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design.

We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.
