The sophistication of casual wear using yak boucle double faced fabric / ヤクブークレのダブルフェイスが醸す洗練されたカジュアル

These pullovers and pants have a relaxed and airy silhouette and texture. The yak cut and sewn fabric is a unique SOWER fabric, produced using a number of special techniques.


Yak is a luxurious material often used as a straight yarn to create coats and jackets. Sower took the yak yarn, made it into boucle, and incorporated it into a double face jersey. The boucle loops give the fabric an overall light and airy look. Yak is often used in woven fabrics and is rare to see in cut and sewn styles. “I wanted to create something that would be sophisticated, yet comfortable." says Soko, the director of Sower.


The fabric’s notable feature is a surface that is made of yak bouclé with the reverse side made of super soft brushed cotton. The double face fabric is split open and the sleeve openings, hems, and side slits are all hand stitched to create invisible seams, without the use of an overlock machine. This is a couture technique that is not usually seen in the production of cut-and-sewn garments. “I wanted to create a seamless finish with the two-sided material. I was particular about paying attention to the smallest details during the production process in order to make a truly beautiful product.” says Soko.


From the warm undyed natural yak color of the fabric to the meticulous attention to details, the refined designs are the result of new ideas combined with classic hand tailored techniques.
