KAMI-ITO, paper yarn in Japanese, is made out of Mitsumata,Kouzo or Hemp paper, slit and twisted into yarn. KAMI-ITO has long been made and is recently receiving attention again as an eco-friendly material. For KAMI-ITO, Montbell uses a sustainable fast growing Manila Hemp, which is cropped in 2-3 years and has a low impact on the environment. Montbell's KAMI-ITO PLUS fabric balances the Manila Hemp made paper yarn and cotton to achieve superior comfort, breathability, moisture absorbency and lightweight.
An excellent material that allows comfort and coolness even during the hottest seasons. Durable against water and easy to wash at home.
KAMI-ITO PLUS' paper yarn uses organic certified (Germany:Ceres) Manila Hemp sustainably farmed in Ecuador. The paper yarn' s manufacturing process is also conducted at an ISO certified factory in Japan. Even the industrial waste produced upon the manufacturing process is also recycled to fuel the facility. This eco-friendly KAMI-ITO, which uses cutting-edge technologies to make fine and strong paper, is also certified according to OEKO-TEX standard 100 (Class 1), which assess possibly harmful substances in textiles.
