Hailing from Japan, Sunray Sportswear craft their Makaha S/S Tees using a technique known as loopwheel construction. This slow process involves knitting cotton around a tube to create a seamless finish on the torso.
Although each tee takes in excess of one and half hours to produce, the result is a garment that will keep its shape after many, many wears and has a superior heavy handle.
Sunray is a one man brand. The man is Colin Campbell. Colin is a geek, a geek always looking for the best way possible to make his tee-shirt dreams happen.
Our opinion is that he found the best way possible to make tee-shirts. Fabrics are rarities from Japan, and all the process is what we call ” artisanat “, a beautiful craft, man made in the most respectful way.
The Makaha is the heaviest fabric you can find, but still, you can wear them in summer. The touch is incredible and colours are always right. Sunray’s makaha is a must have !
PS : look at the details ! The work around the collar is a piece of art.
The Makaha tee-shirt features a heavy but soft and confortable 300g/sqm Japanese jersey, the fit is boxy. And the overall shape makes it a subtle twist on a classic.
