Sundae Jacket - Terroir
This boxy jacket has been with us since almost day one. It appears humble, but the handwoven fabric wears down so beautifully. The fabric is dyed and woven by a lovely group in Thailand and we’ll keep buying their fabric and making these for as long as they want to keep their shuttles moving.
The word 'terroir' is commonly used for wine - used to describe the impact the earth, weather and other environmental factors have on the characteristics of the grape and ultimately it's taste. For us, the terroir impacts the colour & tone. In the same way wines from the same vineyard produce unique notes season-to-season, so too do our dye pots. Even with the same farmers, dyers and weavers using the same land, we find differing tones - sometimes the indigo is more purple, sometimes more green because of minerals and impurities.
This iteration is a celebration of the variation of tones and shades the dyer's indigo vats produce thanks to Mother Nature's input. While we usually match fabrics together to give an even colour across an item, this one-off run takes inspiration from vintage two-tone items.
