Woolrich – Real Ikat Fabric – New In
Woolrich isn’t a company that needs any introductions. The company has been around since 1830 and known for making the best of the best original outdoor. This Woolrich has just landed in store today. The fine fabric is “real ikat fabric” basically this means the fabric has been made by Artisanal Dyeing and weaving technique used in the south pacific region and part of the long textile tradition of those islands. Originating from the Indonesian words for “Knot” to “To Bind”. Ikat is a traditional technique found throughout India to Japan to the Philippines and still in practice today. The Fabric is made by Hand-dyeing portions of the yarn which in turn create a pattern when woven on a loom. The result has natural and unique variations that create the non-uniform beauty of the fabric.
All the effort to make a shirt, is quite worth the money at £110. Considering how many man hours go into creating the pattern and fabric. The shirt is finished with a casual collar and 2 breast pockets with military inspired flap. Combined with real wooden buttons.
Available in 2 colours navy and the one pictured above. Due to go on-line by the end of Next week or sooner.
Below we have picked some items that we think will dress this shirt up well. A pair of Woolrich pinstripe shorts and Universal x Maians footwear.
Maians Footwear :
The lively maritime district of Barcelona was once a barrier island called Maians, which over centuries became a peninsula: the Barceloneta. Artists, fishermen, travellers, bar flies, and local merchants have built a unique community here that combines a laid-back Mediterranean beach culture with the cosmopolitan style of one of Europe’s most dynamic cities. From this colourful setting comes Maians, a thoroughly unique line of plimsolls that fulfils the Spanish requisite of casual yet chic:
100% hecho a mano en España.
Detailed craftsmanship meets urban street style: this is the Maians formula, and it’s what characterizes each deftly assembled pair of our unabashedly good-looking shoes. Created by one of Barcelona’s most consummate designers, Alfonso De La Fuente Rey, each pair of Maians is handmade locally using regional material and vulcanized rubber: a painstaking process that results in a unique brand of footwear that is dashing, durable, and incomparably comfortable.
Our local ‘zapatilleros’ marshal generations of skill and knowhow to hand-craft our products. The names of each model are those typical of the residents of Barcelona’s coastal ‘barrio’. Sisto, Domingo, Jacinto – these are the people of the Barceloneta to whom each pair of Maians is dedicated.
