Background Born in the city of Saitama, Japan, Tsumori Chisato studied fashion at the prestigious Bunka Fashion School in Tokyo. In 1977, she entered the Issey Miyake design company as the head designer for “Issey Sports”, later renamed “I.S. Chisato Tsumori Design.” With this solid apprenticeship under her belt and the encouragement of Mr. Miyake himself, Tsumori Chisato started her own line in 1990, a collection that made its catwalk debut in Tokyo at Fashion Week that same year. This Cowichan jacket features a tweed-like weave and fringing found along the seams. Cowichan knitting techniques come from Vancouver Island in British Columbia, oft-reckoned as an acculturated art form. The native knits blended Euro textile techniques with Salish spinning and weaving methods. Though constructed of wool yarn, this jacket's dense nature holds its shape as opposed to lighter weight knits.
Details A rather playful Cowichan style weave. Work jacket cut, spread collar, and silver zip closure. Fringing along the shoulder, body, zipper, and inner arm seams.
