Our patchwork Lagos shirt is inspired by the Baye Fall, a religious sect from Senegal that wear outfits where the patchwork is mostly arranged vertically.
The shirt is constructed from cotton treated in "Adire" - a rare hand dyeing process developed by the Yorubas in the Southwest region of Nigeria.
Prior to dyeing, the artist hand paints patterns using a cassava starch paste that acts as the resist dye.
Our focus was to transform an old world technique into a new form of design.
Due to the nature of the process, each product varies in uniqueness and individuality, giving them a one of kind feel.
