The entirety of this jacket is woven by hand and then printed by hand. The block-printing is done in a way as to mimic the workstation of a block printer, which after numerous rounds of printing resembles a very disheveled and layered look, encompassing months if not years of block-printing sessions within the fabric. The concept behind this design was to play with elements of chaos, uncertainty and layered feelings, so as to depict the destructive consequences of censorship on ideological narratives within a society. The bomber is cropped in length, fits slightly oversized, and is constructed in heavyweight hand-woven twill, finished with satin quilted lining on the inside.

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.
