Samue (作務衣) is the work clothing of Japanese Zen Buddhist monks, worn when engaged in "samu" means daily works of Zen monks such as cleaning and wood chopping.
Made from cotton or linen and traditionally dyed brown or indigo to distinguish them from formal vestments. In modern times they have become popular as general casual or work wear.
Because samue is originally made as working clothes, it is very functional, easy to wear and it also allows freedom of movement.
Compare to kimono, samue has less regulations. There are no rules such as when, where, how to wear. It has variety in materials, so you can enjoy various textures throughout the seasons. Above all, you can appreciate Japanese clothing by the enjoyment of dressing samue.
