Jinbutsu Tailors Chalk

Little green boxes from Japan have now landed!

Here at B&B-TLC we pride ourselves in maintaining a high level of customer service.  This includes listening and reacting to our customers comments and requirements. Over recent months we have had conversations with our customers, particularly bespoke tailors in and around Savile Row, who have expressed interest in a specific tailors chalk from Japan.

The chalk is called Jinbutsu Tailors Chalk and is manufactured by a company in Japan established in 1865. The company produces ceremonial uniforms and uniform accessories for various government departments (military, police etc.) as well as a range of sewing supplies.

We welcome a challenge and after a lot of searching (and translation!) we have managed to source the chalk. Our first trial shipment of Jinbutsu Chalk from Japan has now arrived and we are pleased to be able to offer from stock in 4 colours – white, yellow, blue and red. These are packaged in small boxes each holding 10 triangle pieces individually separated and in cartons containing 6 green boxes. View the products here.

We also have available high-quality tailors shears that are hand forged from Shirogami white paper steel made in Japan. Complementing these products are some of our recent Printed Lining Collection designs as seen in the pictures below.
