Mompe pants are loose cotton trousers worn by farmers and laborers in Japan since the Edo era. This pair is a modern twist on the age-old design, and features grey and white fans on two-tone crimson cotton. They have an elasticized waist to fit all adult sizes, fit loosely at the hips and thighs and taper to mid-calf length.

These comfortable pants are the perfect casual daywear for lounging about the house, working in the garden, or practicing yoga and pilates. The pure cotton fabric keeps getting softer and more comfortable over the years as it is washed and worn.

This item is crafted by Shigetoshi Maruyama, a fifth-generation fabric dyer and weaver from a Kyushu family company going back 150 years. Maruyama combines traditional "kasuri" dying techniques from his hometown of Kurume with a modern sensibility and color palette. Unlike printed cloth, the patterns in kasuri fabric are produced by the Ikat technique, weaving resist-dyed cotton weft threads against solid-color warp threads.

Since only a few bolts of each fabric are woven, stocks of these items in a specific pattern or color are very limited. Each bolt of fabric makes just three pairs of mompe pants.
