Hamaekake is a traditional Japanese apron that has long been used as work clothes by workers.

The meaning of Homaekake (sail aprons) includes the following:

(1) To prevent dirt and injury
The typical role of the sail apron is to prevent stains and injuries during work. Especially in liquor stores, where the cases for sake bottles used to be wooden boxes, people used to use a sail apron to prevent their clothes from being torn, and also to prevent injuries caused by spikes from those wooden boxes or broken sake bottles.

(2) To protect the waist
Especially in liquor and rice shops, heavy loads are often carried, which can easily cause back pain.   By fastening the Homaekake around the pelvis, it becomes a supporter and stabilizes the axis of the body, thus reducing the burden on the lower back when carrying heavy loads.

(3) To protect from heat
Unlike aprons and simple aprons, the fabric of a sail apron is thicker and made of cotton, making it more durable. That thick fabric not only protects from abrasions, cuts, and other injuries, but also from heat.

(4) As an advertisement of the store
If a store's name or logo is printed on the front of a sailcloth, it can be used as a good advertisement when serving customers or making deliveries at the store, and it also played the role of a uniform when worn by all store staff.

<Caution: How to wash>

1. Avoid using fabric softener when washing.

2. The color may fade due to the nature of the dye, so please wash separately from white items.

3. The fabric may shrink slightly due to its nature.
