Vietnam, Kilomet109, Bình Batik Shirt
This men's dress shirt is made from lightweight 100% organic cotton that has been indigo dyed with hand drawn batik by artisans from Vietnam's Blue H'mong community. The broken line design is a non-traditional motif, and is the result of a collaboration between Kilomet109 and Blue H'mong artisans. Each line is drawn using a traditional bamboo pen with a copper tip that is dipped into melted beeswax like an old-fashioned quill and then drawn directly onto the white cotton fabric. The fabric is then dyed in indigo and boiled to remove the beeswax and reveal the white lines, like a relief drawing.
The shirt is designed and sewn in Kilomet109's home atelier.
