Fabric Khadi spun, hand loomed, natural Indigo hank dyed in Thailand
Pearl Snap Button
shirt cut and sewn in USA
Due to the nature of Hank dyed Natural Indigo there is shading throughout the garment making each shirt a truly one of a kind.
Khadi Spun yarn is done on an old wooden spinning wheel and has incredible slubby texture which cannot be naturally reproduced using modern technology.
Natural Indigo is made from fermented Indigofera leaves which is a living culture that has a short lifespan. Natural Hank dyed Indigo is extremely rare and is an extremely expensive process. Synthetic Indigo was invented in Germany in 1897 and is used in all denim today unless noted otherwise.
Each Garment is washed and hot dried to remove shrinkage. We recommend hand washing, hang drying for future laundering.
This is a very special shirt, it looks as though it was pulled out of a mine at the turn of the century already broken in and aged and faded to perfection. Please note, the process of hand loom and natural indigo Hank Dying creates a variation in color and texture and each piece is truly a work of art. If you prefer everything to be consistent and exactly the same this might not be for you. As the Japanese say this is truly Wabi Sabi, the beauty of imperfection in a natural progression.
