Having recently introduced its Spring/Summer 2018 collection, Japanese outdoor label Snow Peak unveils its latest undertaking. Dubbed “LOCAL WEAR,” the range centers around remastered Japanese heritagewear, crafted by local artisans.
LOCAL WEAR encompasses a range of traditional clothing, including jiban and hanten jackets, patti workpants and a host of patched work shirts. Available in raw and washed indigo, several items are accented with dots. Snow Peak works with Niigata-based craftspeople to create the line, which benefits small factories and dye facilities. The brand will also organize tours for enthusiasts curious about the process that goes into making the line.
The collection hits Snow Peak stores on April 2. Check out Snow Peak’s LOCAL WEAR site for info and watch the video below for a look at the clothes being made and worn.
