It is the cloth for Usaato clothes that the villagers in Thailand and Laos dye thread with natural dyes around them and weave the thread into cloth with handmade rustic waving machines.
They think what colors to dye and what patterns to weave.
We value not to match popular colors, designs nor standards, but to weave as they want to weave.
Beautiful cloth is the nature of the villages as it is, and the wisdom of living that has been passed down for a long time. The background and creativity of each weaver must also be there.
This cloth is collected in “USAATO SIAM,” the production base of Usaato clothes.
And there, clothes are made according to the design of SATO Usaburo so that the individuality of each cloth can be harnessed.
The flow from sewing to distribution is not stopped as much as possible, and many people work together to connect the benefits of the nature from hand to hand, and as a result, the clothes are created.
