Super comfortable, easy to wear and so chearfull - our Akin shirt is perfect for your summer essentials.

 

We made Akin shirt entirely out of Hand Block printed & natural dyed fabric.

This print design has to be created by the artist before the printing begins. It is carved onto the wooden block by hand. The carved block is then dipped into the dye and stamped onto the fabric with steady hands. The whole process is done entirely by hand.

 

Separate blocks are used for each different color and shape thus creating designs unobtainable by any other method. With this hand stamped technique - there are no 2 alikes. Time-consuming and precise, block printing involves extensive years of experiences, teamwork and diligence.

 

This shirt then is stitched together by our independent tailor, Gopal Ji (see more in our blog) with his small, manual machine – no electricity involved. Fair and direct trade guarantee.

 

By using natural handcrafted fabrics and entirely handmade process, we aim to turn the clock back, preserve precious tradition and directly support the real people who put their hands and hearts to create the piece.
