What makes Himoriwabi Couture's Samue so special

Himoriwabi Couture has been making Japanese style clothing and accessories for years and their proudest creation is still their world renowned Samue.

How Himoriwabi Samue is different from other Samue makers

Currently, Himoriwabi Couture offers 4 different kinds of Samue, in 4 different materials. So how are they any different? They certainly look the same from a distance but what is it that really sets them apart?

First of all, all 4 of Himoriwabi's different kinds of Samue stand out from other clothing makers because of the sheer effort and skill required to produce such an outstanding piece of clothing. From material extraction to Wazarashi bleaching to final packaging and customer service, Himoriwabi as a brand is committed to serving their customers with excellence and the spirit of Kaizen.

At the same time, the people at Himoriwabi Couture do everything they can to keep costs as low as possible for the end consumers. The production costs for such a piece of clothing is not cheap but they managed to still make it affordable for most people. Instead of cutting corners and making an inferior product, they cut out the middlemen and other related costs to bring you their high quality Samue at a reasonable and affordable price.

Himoriwabi has designed their Samue to do just about everything from rigorous exercise to soothing sleep. Of course it wouldn’t be the best idea to run a marathon in it, but they made sure that moving around in it feels as comfortable as possible.

To do this, their Samue are created through rigorous processes and are very labor intensive. As a result, most of our Samue are only available through made-to-order.
