Jobu Oven Mitten

Color Indigo
An oven mitt made from Kurashiki sailcloth* constructed with two different thicknesses of canvas. The thicker canvas protects the fingers and the more flexible one, your palm. The stitching is carefully designed to ensure a comfortable fit.

*Thick, plain-woven fabric that weighs eight-ounces or more per square meter is called sailcloth. It is a natural material produced originally for boat sails in Kurashiki City, Okayama Prefecture in the late Edo Period. The company manage the entire process from the twisting of a single thread to the weaving a fabric roll. They still use shuttle looms (largely replaced in favour of modern, faster machines) to give the fabric a beautiful texture which develops a lovely patina with age. The 'selvedge' weft threads found on the sides of the fabrics are proof that the product is made with a shuttle loom.
