Indigo Handloom Crosscut Shirt
This variant is currently sold out
One of the most unique pieces we have carried here at I&P, 3Sixteen have scaled up their artisan production methods to create a super unique shirt.
The most special part is the fabric itself: soft cotton is spun into irregular yarns with varying thicknesses. Next, the yarns for the shirt are hand dyed in natural indigo vats - the slubby yarns take the indigo on in different amounts, leading to a beautiful variance in color. Then, fabric is loomed on traditional wooden handlooms by skilled artisans into a grid-like fabric that’s reminiscent of military ripstop fabric. Because of the multiple points of artisan hand done work, every yard of fabric is unique and no two shirts are the same.
Enamel-coated metal buttons add to the charm of the shirt in that they start off in a uniform cream color but will chip and age as the shirt is worn and washed further by the wearer. This piece will just get better and better with time and wear.
Finally each shirt is given a garment rinse to eliminate major shrinkage, soften the fabric, and further bring out the pops of indigo.
A lot of info to take in but these really are special pieces that we hope you will love and appreciate as much as we do.
We recommend sizing up one size from your usual size.
Hand wash cold!
