Samue Set

£58.33 ex VAT
£70.00 inc VAT

Often worn as traditional style casual wear in Japan, Samue originated as comfortable yet simple monk’s working uniform for daily duties.


100% cotton, in a soft, light-weight denim material which balances comfort with durability.  This Samue set consists of a comfortable, wrap over style jacket with internal fastening ties and drawstring waist trousers complete with pockets and fold over ankle ties.


In addition to casual use, Samue are utilised in many traditional arts such as Zen meditation, Shodo calligraphy, Ikebana flower arrangement and even some classical Bujutsu Ryuha such as Miyamoto Musashi’s Niten Ichi Ryu.

Samue set
Although the one arrived was Miyabi and not Wabisabi as per labelled as illustrated (I bought a Wabisabi in Tokyo earlier and so know this maker - alternative name for samue is jimbei). The Miyabi, however is equally a good product, if not better. The Indigo Blue colour is traditional for Japanese monk's work-wear and so was pleased to receive this. I even took it to Japan last visit, to wear arond the house in the mornings... evenings, I prefer to wear kimono or tanzan, depending upon the weather. Although the samue set may appear a litle expensive, it is good quality manufacture as one would expect from Japan (the wabisabi is made in China). One little tip though, because of the cloth being indigo dyed, do not machine wash at a high temperature.
