REI's original lace is mainly made of natural materials that are comfortable to the touch.
Linen, cotton, and even wool, which is rare in winter.
Unlike tough synthetic fiber threads, natural threads are delicate and easily cut, and are affected by slight changes in humidity and temperature, so machine production requires skill.
Rare and valuable lace that is not suitable for mass production and requires the handiwork of craftsmen.
REI's original lace is made from natural materials that are difficult to produce, and uses even finer thread.
A lace collage that is synonymous with REI.
Remnants and bleeds generated during the manufacturing process of the product are further hand-cut and joined together by hand.
Each one is a small piece, but by cutting and connecting the motifs, a unique antique-like texture is created.
In recent years, it has become a problem that hundreds of thousands of tons of waste cloth are generated annually in Japan alone, but REI has long been working on manufacturing that does not throw away cloth.
A large number of pins are used to connect small pieces of lace to create a single piece of lace.
It takes time and effort, and spares no effort.
It is a new and somewhat nostalgic expression of lace that spins the history of lace that REI has created so far.
