Our popular v-neckline rectangle dresses are now in 100% Cotton from the Chita Peninsula in Aichi Prefecture. The light weight and drape of the wide cut makes it perfectly breezy for the hot weather of summertime. You can layer with a cute bandeau or crop top for those small summer outings to a cafe, or use as a coverup over your swimwear at the beach! Two on-seam pockets make it easy when you need to just pull on and go.

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.
Each piece of fabric is inspected thoroughly both visually and by feel to ensure quality control. Each piece is made with much deliberation, achieving a strong material free of imperfections, perfectly suiting everyday garments and accessories.
