The pattern is applied to the fabric with a traditional resist dye technique. We apply a wax based solution to the un-dyed undyed fabric. Then it goes through a hand-dyed process where the indigo will not penetrate the fabric covered by the ink. That’s how the pattern can appear subtle as a vintage indigo shirt.
Base fabric is made from a 7oz cotton twill fabric. The cotton twill is made using a traditional handwoven technique by the artisans with over than 20 years of experiences. Slowly made to ensure the texture and feel that cannot be replicate by today’s production technique.
Nowadays, any manufactaring process is done in the simplest and fastest way to be able to supply the mass product industry. As we are a very detailed micro-brand, we decide to do the process in much more slow-detailed-traditional and long forgotten methods.
