Luna Recycled Cotton Rib Knit Dress | Half Moon
The LUNA dress takes a thematic approach to the cyclical nature of our life and surroundings as we understand it — be it lunar, water, carbon, spiritual, mental, physical and so on— and weaves it into a world in which we dress in accordance to our current state.
HALF MOON refers to the Luna in both creamy ivory and deep charcoal-black. The Half Moon represents a changing of tides and seasons within. It is a period of ebbing and flowing and is worn when thoughts pertaining to evolution arrive: “I am growing, evolving, and editing,” “I am letting go of old ways and inviting new routines and strategies in,” ”I am in the midst of action and am building momentum.”
This is a cropped style; hem hits above ankle on 5’4” person and calf on 5’10” person
To ensure garment longevity, hidden elastic is sewn inside the seams to keep the same shape and prevent stretching out over time.

After a thorough investigation of what using recycled material means in all aspects, Taiyo is so very proud to introduce a recycled cotton knit. The mill they chose, Toki Sen, functions on a policy of “symbiosis with nature,” meaning they manufacture with ecological considerations and promotion of oil removal. The mill is a member of BCP (Better Cotton Platform).
They use TSURI knitting machines that move in a slow ticking motion to produce old fashioned, high quality stitches, literally weaving air into the fabric which gives you an incredibly soft and beautiful texture that is impossible to reproduce on modern day machines. This traditional method has been slowly developed over 100+ years with thought and intention and with great attention to detail.
Toki Sen uses “fallen cotton” which means they use old clothing such as secondhand clothing or cutting wastage and return it to a raw cotton form. To do so, they “fluff” the material, meaning a machine breaks the weave of the previously made clothing. The making process of the newly recycled fabric has a very low carbon footprint as the result is a combination of experienced artisan’ skill and the traditional Japanese techniques use and refer to as “slow vintage.”
Additionally, a portion of Taiyo's fabric purchase for the Luna Dress went to Burkina Faso, which contributes to the healthy development of the country through the ethical purchase of cotton grown in Burkina Faso in West Africa. A portion also goes to support medical care and education through the Japan Burkina Faso Friendship Association.
Toki Sen is admirably continuing their journey to live in symbiosis with nature. They are currently working to install solar for in-house power generation.
