Tabi history is very long and very old.
I don't know when somebody created Tabi.
Tabi in Japanese culture, we have to recommend to the world.
And I think that Tabi will be popular because they are very unique design.
I came up about making SUPER BORO BORO JIKATABI when I bought Tabi last summer.
When I was taken some puctures for listing online store,
I was wearing Jikatabi.
And I thought at that time " they are very comfortable,
if I will make SUPER BORO BORO JIKATABI by them,
I guess they will be more cool! "
So I made sample.
And then I posted them on Instagram.
I got a lot of reaction.
I thought that SUPER BORO BORO JIKATABI is very great idea.
But it was very difficult that making them.
Because first Jikatabi was used adhesive to their outsole.
My hand-stitching needle broke a lot when I was making them.
So I was looking for other company and I found that.
They are sewing by hand when sticking outsole to body.
I love this word, "sewing by hand" .
So I ordered 2 jikatabi.
Their Jikatabi are very great works, so I contacted to KINEYA TABI.
And I started making SUPER BORO BORO JIKATABI by them.
Anyway if you want to buy normal jikatabi, Please check their web site.
you can get them!
