Suo, or maroon, falls in the range of warm reds. It is a deep, rich saturated blend of brown, red, and purple. Suo is the name of the sappanwood tree from which the dye comes. Amanuno is linenβ€”a bast fiber of ancient heritage. The graceful drape of linen is amplified as it is pressed, worn, washed, and handled.

This top’s semi-fitted waistline flares to a basketweave pattern at the lower edge. A simple garter ridge finishes the armhole and jewel neck edges. In its simplicity, this piece is elegant by itself, but also layers well under many kimono, such as the Re-Su Katabira (page 64), Nishiki kimono (page 56), and Shimofuri Chairo Ke-Bura (page 20). Suo Amanuno will translate well into any colorβ€”it is a classy wardrobe basic that’s better than the T-shirt!
