Indigo Komon Bow Tie


Imitating the look of sharkskin has a long history in fashion. While most people are familiar with the sharkskin suit, most are unfamiliar with the ancient kimono fabric patterns of Japan known as Samekomon.

Samekomon is one of the oldest kimono patterns known in Japan. Same means shark in Japanese and the term komon refers to a stenciling technique in which designs composed of minute holes are cut into the stencil paper.

Samekomon has the appearance of a modest solid when viewed from a distance. When viewed up close it reveals the true nature and detail involved in it’s creation.

The Samekomon Bow Tie is made from a heavy weight cotton printed with a traditional Japanese samekomon pattern. The fabric is a dark indigo blue with light tan dots arranged in patterns that create the sharkskin effect. MORE ABOUT SAMEKOMON
