The warp printed "ILLUSION" shirt for Volume V is by far one of the most technical pieces within the collection, with each shirt taking around SEVEN DAYS to produce. The garment is produced by way of a traditional printing technique known as "Warp Printing". Fine cotton threads are assembled on a beam which are then printed on by hand carved wooden blocks and then woven by a traditional hand loom. This technique gives the fabric a very faded and textured look similar to the effect of water colours. The narrative meaning behind this technique is a reference to the the juxtaposition of youthful exuberance and feelings of emptiness and identity crisis. The garment is the perfect statement piece and conversation started for this spring/summer season, and pairs even better with Volume V's warp printed jacket and sweatpants.

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.
