This dynamic two-tone jacket repackages traditional Pakistani truck art culture with a distinctive Rastah twist. The trucking industry has been a leading influence in the creation of this collection and this garment is our most direct homage to artistic traditions of our latest muse. The hap-hazard split design, however, also eludes to the darker aspects of this striking and complicated industry, which we have also sought to explore throughout our current work. The upper half, made of acrylic wool was handpainted by Bilal, one of Rastah’s oldest collaborators, a furniture and truck painter in Lahore. Previously, he painted the immensely popular Poet’s Jacket for Volume II. The lower half of this jacket was constructed from black handwoven acrylic fabric with delicate coloured yarn detailing.

Block-Printing is an ancient Asian method of dyeing fabric. It involves intricately carving wooden blocks by hand and then using natural dyes to “print” onto the fabric. Block-printing is an environmentally friendly and durable technique we use on several pieces.
Handwoven fabrics are woven by hand by using a handloom. Handweaving produces zero pollution as it does not require electricity or any machinery. It is an artisanal craft that is inherently time-consuming. The outcome is timeless pieces of clothing built to last.
Patchwork involves handsewn patches of fabric that are then sewn onto our products. These patches are often block-printed as well. The result is a beautiful eye-catching patch that helps distinguish our pieces.
