This vivid black and green hoodie is the product of a collaboration with Lahore based digital artist Abrahim Butt and close work with Aslam Mirza, Rastah’s in-house blockprinter. The printed patch, deconstructed at the center of the garment, designed by up and coming Lahore based artist, Abrahim Butt, and meant to be a sort of ode to Pakistan, presents a complicated maze of pop culture references, obscure and recognizable local iconography, and classic Rastah typography. The patch is set in between a split of parrot green and deep black cotton fabric, block printed by hand. the design philosophy is centred around a layered complexity of how human beings interpret their surroundings based off their unique experiences; this thought is then viewed through the lens of a unique take on truck and and the industry as a whole.
