Shima Plaid

Shima Plaid


Shima-Shima or Stripe-Stripe is a traditional cotton cloth originating from the southwest of Japan. It is a vertically striped cotton cloth that was prized throughout Japan to make the hakama and the obi.

Woven with pre-dyed cotton yarn, technically much more warp than weft, the cloth shows clear vertical stripes (shima) and the marvelous three-dimensional effect the stripes create is the most distinctive feature of the weaving.
