USAATO Clothing Exhibition & Sale
August 4, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm EDTFree
CRS welcomes you to the fourth exhibition of USAATO clothing at CRS on August 4, 2018! Designer Mr. Usaburo’s staff will personally help to select and coordinate the garments that would suit you best.
August 4 from 11 am – 5 pm in the award-winning White Room
USAATO shares beautiful traditional clothes made in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The clothing is designed by Japanese haute couture designer Usaburo Sato with fabrics made by the caring hands of the Thai people. The fabrics are mostly made of hand-spun cotton, silk and hemp, picked in mountains and villages, naturally dyed from plants and fruits, then made into clothes with traditional weaving machines by women in local villages of north and northeast Thailand and Laos. The attention, time and passion put into the creation of these clothes give it a sense of energy that can be felt on your body and in your soul. Soft and warm, relaxing wears suitable for both outside and home.
All fabrics are once gathered at “USAATO SIAM” in Chiang Mai and then delivered for the sewing process. USAATO clothes are sewn by individuals and groups outbound Chiang Mai, not by the company’s factory. (One part of our products is from machine-weaving.)
The products are mostly women’s clothes but men’s clothes, children’s clothes, samue (monk’s working clothes), and rakui (pajamas) are also available. Approximate prices for tops are from $70 to $180 while bottoms are from $90 to $180.
USAATO clothes are selling all over the world at pop-up exhibitions organized by USAATO partners called coordinators. USSATO NEW YORK will hold exhibitions every few months at CRS.
Wearing hemp clothing promotes personal health in a variety of ways. Hemp/ cotton blends are both more absorbent humid and more mildew resistant than 100% cotton. Fabric made using 50% or higher of hemp will block more UV rays than non-hemp fabrics. And have you ever noticed that hemp-made garments don’t create static? That is because hemp has the same net static charge as human skin, resonating perfectly with our electromagnetic fields.
Following the exhibition there will be a concert by world musician Chakkiri at 7 pm. Chakkiri plays using numerous instruments, some of them he made himself and many collected in his global travels, that produce beautiful tones. He learned Classical Indian Raga Music from Kishor Gosh, who studied under world-renowned Ravi Shankar. He has been in on a journey to create and share borderless music drawing improvisationally on various traditional music forms and contemporary styles to create musical conversations from spirit and of the moment. He also regularly teachers workshops and offers own unique form of music therapy.
Enjoy Organic clothes and soul-shaking sound!
