Product description
The Desert shirt was inspired on that old shirt you use on house work or go off hiking. A double stitch all over gives it a rugged look, and it makes it a strong piece built for long-term use.

The ample fit is perfect to be used as an overshirt, yet fit enough to be used by itself. The boldness of the fabric makes it the perfect shirt for any occassion either indoors or outdoors. Just wear it anywhere.

Craftmanship

Dyed using vegetable dyes. Particularly, the dried branches ofย Rubia cordifoleaย (Madder) were used to dye the yarn into a unique red. Yarn was after knitted into this one of a kind terry fabric.

Fabric has been dyed using traditional forms of dyeing with plants and minerals, with Alum as a mordant. However, waste is neutralized and the minimum residue can be used as compost. Madder dyeing is one of the most complicated natural dyeing processes. And it is a color susceptible of bleeding.

Our collections are made in small limited batches.
