Souvenir from SUNCHI ~Fuji Yoshida City~ Linen handkerchief(R&D.M.Co-)

Hi, I’m Manami.
Here at “Souvenir from SUNCHI”, we’d like to present you something nice what we’ve met in production areas. This time we will report from Fuji Yoshida City, Yamanashi Prefecture, located at the foot of Mt.Fuji.

The area including Fuji Yoshida city is the production area of the textile with over 1000 years’ history. It traces its roots to the textile named “Kaiki”, which means the silk made in Kai, the old name of Yamanashi Prefecture. Today, they make various items such as tie, umbrella, stole, etc., and this diversity makes them unique among the production areas.

One of the most brilliant brands in the area is a linen shop named R&D.M.Co, OLDMAN’S TAYLOR. We’ve selected a pure white linen handkerchief for your gift at this shop. The ramie cloth of white, delicate and transparent is woven up from the high count of yarn. The hem is stitched up by hand with care. The decency of the handkerchief is right for a special occasion. The embroidery of “RD” gives it more a look of European antique.
* Ramie is a kind of linen called “Choma” in Japanese. It has crunchy touch and stronger than usual linen.

The simplicity picks up its thin and delicate beauty. The pure white square thing that everyone must’ve wanted to have once at least has an effect to make our back straight.

We bought it here.
