I call this dress “Yu”.

This one-piece dress is made from vintage Japanese "Noren" and tenugui from the Showa era (1926-1989).

Noren began in Kanei era (around 1642) and was used for curtains that dyed the names of businesses on them for promotion. During the Showa era, the most popular gathering place in town was the public bathhouse. Noren was hung outside the women’s and men’s bathhouse. This Retro dress takes us back in time to the old days of ordinary people’s lives. It is a sustainable and unique item. Taking advantage noren’s straight lines, this dress is a shoulder-drop design.
