We love wearing our Linen Samue. They look great, are soft to the touch, and are strong enough to last a lifetime.
Linen is a sustainable fabric made from flax fibers that has been used for 6000 years. Stronger than cotton, it holds its color longer than most natural materials.
We use European linen, dyed and finished in the USA. Our Linen Samue are preshrunk, and can be dry cleaned or machine washed and tumble dried.
Samue (or Samu-e or Samu-gi) is traditionally the work jacket for a Buddhist monk or nun in Japan. And it looks great on anyone. Wear it to the meditation hall, the dojo, around town or working in the garden. The fit is quite roomy. The samue closes with ties and you’ll find it has a zippered outside pocket and a hidden inside pocket. And like all of our clothing and cushions, it’s made right here in Seattle. Whether working, meditating, or relaxing, we think you’ll love doing it in any of our Samue collections.
These match our Linen Samue Pants, we invite you to feel free to mix and match.
“Samu” means “work practice” in a Zen community – these are the garment of choice for Japanese monks and nuns when they are not sitting in meditation doing the work of the day. That said, we think they look and feel great in the meditation hall. And whatever your line of work happens to be, we think you’ll love doing it in this jacket.
Our Linen Samue Jackets come in three colors – Gray, Blue, and Black.
