About Chita Cotton
Chita cotton was produced in the Chita peninsula of the Aichi Prefecture during the Edo Period. Even now, Chita cotton fabric is woven by the shuttle loom created in the Meiji era. This beautiful and sturdy material is used for many articles of clothing including yukata and jinbei, as well as small items such as tenugui hand towels which have a 50cm width.
