This item is avialableONLINE! Today's customer is Nick. He got a pair of tabi shoes with arabesque pattern in gold and white. People tend to be afraid of wearing gold cause it is considered too flashy, but actually this is very versatile color and goes with a lot of outfits. You can wear with dark jeans like him, or if you are a girl, pair it up with leggings and skirt and looks cute too!
Today's customers are Haozhou and Fei, visiting from Oregon. Haozhou got a pair of tabi shoes with the "Radish flower" pattern and Fei got a pair of alabaster pattern in navy. It is very inspiring to see men wearing flower patterns, and I love how they are wearing the shoes with shorts. Their outfits complement each other in a very cute way! 本日のお客様はオレゴン州からお越しのHaozho様とFei様です。Haozhou 様はすずしろ柄の先割地下足袋を、Fei様はゆきはな柄の地下足袋をお買い上げになりました。男性が花柄にチャレンジしているのは見ていてとても楽しいですし、ショーツと足袋をあわせているのも すてきです！一緒に並んでいるとても可愛い二人組です。 (Chinatsu)

This pattern that mixes small stripes and gingham is among my favorite pattern type. By changing the width of the stripe, density, and changing the space between, I make the pattern more attractive. I always achieve making these patterns by just sketching randomly.

Business Card Case:
Made of Japanese Ise Cotton, this business card holder keeps your precious contacts' cards safe in its soft casing while bringing an elegant look to the table. Fastens close using the same metal tabs that close tabi boot shoes.
Known for its amazingly soft texture, Ise Cotton appears once again in our All-Season Scarves! Made with starch to strengthen the fabric, it gets softer and softer with each use and wash! Just thin enough for warmer seasons but functional for cold winters, you will feel great with this scarf wrapped around you!
Most Tabi shoes take a good minute to snap into place. These Tabi do you one better by being at the ready for your feet when you need to be on the go, without sacrificing the comfort and close feel to the ground that Tabi give you.
The perfect accent for Dad's coat, these Ise Cotton handkerchiefs bring tradition back in style. With various designs ranging from monochrome to more floral, it shouldn't be hard to find the perfect one for Daddy dearest.

Today's customer is Uma. She got our Fisherman's pants made of Ise cotton. Looks great with her white top, doesn't it? She loved our pants so much she also got our harem pants with two tone pattern. This pair of pants is inspired by traditional Middle Eastern pants. While it looks like a skirt from first glance, it is actually composed of two pant legs that balloon out. With it's two tone pattern and unique shape, these pants are definitely a statement piece, and also very comfortable as they are made with 100% ise cotton.
*The harem pants are completely sold out but we will getting them in different designs soon! Stay tuned!
Today's featured textile design is "miyako dance". This new textile design just came out last month, and is used in our tenugui towel.
"Miyako Dance" is seen when the beautiful Maiko (apprentice geisha) from Kyoto's Gion district all dress up in their gorgeous kimono and perform their dance, known as Miyako dance, among a stage full of blooming cherry blossom trees. This is a staple event for Kyoto in April, having been celebrated for around 130 years. Maiko, lined up together and wearing blue kimono with a cherry blossom pattern, look truly glamorous. Through the image of Kimono, Kyoto's enfevered richness is expressed, welcoming in the Spring season.
Today's customer is Akiko. Akiko recently discovered SOU・SOU through reading an interview of our textile designer Wakisaka in ”Tennen Seikatsu(natural life)"magazine. She picked up a pair of black short boots, and also our all season cotton scarf with flower pattern. Her friends' daughter also wanted to try our tabi shoes too, but they are still a little bit big for her...maybe next year! Thank you for modeling for us, Akiko san! 本日のお客様は、あきこ様です。最近雑誌「天然生活」でデザイナーの脇坂さんのインタビューを読んでからSOU・SOUのことをお知りになったそうです。本日は墨黒の自力マジック足袋と、伊勢木綿のくびまきをお求めになりました。一緒にご来店されたお友達のお嬢さんも 地下足袋をはきたかったようなのですが、今回はまだ大きすぎるといういうことで、断念。来年いらっしゃれば、ちょうど小さいサイズが ぴったりなのではないかと思います。今回はモデルをしていただき、ありがとうございました！ (Chinatsu)
