Meijin Tropical Uniform:
This 10 ounce fabric was stronger than cotton twill, had really sharp snap and the strength of traditional high quality canvas. However, this is canvas that is specifically and appropriately woven of cotton fibers that are ideal to be worn next to the skin, not made into backpack and truck covers.
Before the advent of computer-driven looms, it was almost impossible to weave canvas to this quality because the level of consistency and accuracy required was practically impossible to achieve, particularly with the large “makes” or quantities of fabric that we need to manufacture at one time to ensure the best quality control.
The latest Japanese looms coupled with advanced computer technology have significantly improved the fabric quality if the weaving loom formulas are carefully designed, and thoroughly tested. |
Our research has resulted in this 10 ounce “Tropical” type canvas which combines the strength and quality of a heavyweight canvas without its bulk, weight, and demanding care regime as far as washing, drying and ironing are concerned.
“Tropical” canvas is really finely woven but strong and “snappy,” and does not cling when wet. It also washes easily and dries quickly, particularly important for the members who train with us in Okinawa where the heat and humidity can sometimes be a real challenge!
The Meijin Tropical Plus Uniform is a very substantial upgrade from our original Tropical uniform.
