"Spring, Created by Nature."
Spring shows us that life is truly a constant beginning, a constant opportunity, a constant springtime. Take advantage of the day and the opportunities that spring can bring.
Drawing natural fabrics, simple design and neutral colours together, MUJI introduces a series of comfortable and durable daily wear items supporting a neutral yet versatile coordination for different occasions and unpredictable weather. As spring commences, enjoy the comfort brought by natural materials such as organic cotton and linen, simply by coordinating with compatible weather-proof garments.
The fibers of linen, made from the flax plant, are said to be especially strong compared to other natural fibers. One of its properties is its increase in fiber strength when it gets wet.
We hope you will enjoy seeing the changes to its deep, soft texture as you wash and use it.
Cotton production consumes as much as 1/4 of all pesticides used globally. This goes to show how time-consuming and labor-intensive cotton production is. As a result, large quantities of pesticides accumulate in the soil, impacting the producers, the people living nearby, and the flora and fauna.
MUJI's uses organic cotton grown on land that has been free from pesticides and chemical fertilizers for at least 3 years.
A blend of delicate downy hair of yaks with shiny merino wool of similar fiber thickness brings a smooth texture.
Among all colours available, dark mocha brown items are made directly using the original colour of natural yak hair. Items in other colours are made through dyeing process, while retaining most of its underlying original colour.
This allows features of natural materials to be shown in their original form, and echoes to the core principles of MUJI's product development.

We select raw materials for our products with utmost care. We care about environment, health and safety, and needless to say, about animal welfare conditions.
For the Australian down jackets launched in the autumn-winter season 2018, we use only the feathers certified by a responsible independent organization. This means that five freedoms of animal welfare* are met, and the material does not come from birds that have been subjected to any unnecessary harm such as force-feeding or live-plucking. We search for the best not only for functionality but also for our customers, suppliers and nature.
Five freedoms of animal welfare are: (1) Freedom from hunger and thirst, (2) Freedom from discomfort, (3) Freedom from pain, injury or disease, (4) Freedom to express normal behaviour, and (5) Freedom from fear and distress (quoted from Farm Animal Welfare Council, UK)
