*** PLEASE READ***
This Ijebu shirt feels special to us; and there a few reasons for this.
For one, it is our first camp collar shirt; a product we have been wanting to do for quite some time.
Secondly, it is the result of our first attempt at manufacturing our clothes in Africa. We have shifted our production from US to Kenya, while our dyeing still takes place in Nigeria. Besides a few things like buttons and patterns, the process to manufacture that shirt was entirely done in Africa.
We had previously done a run of these shirts in a deadstock seersucker fabric (As shown in picture).
This time, we will be offering it in adire-dyed funtua cotton that is local to Nigeria- a fabric that we use as a base cloth for most of our shirts every year (Click these links for reference of one of our funtua made shirts)
Our approach with this is part of our new process of trying as much as possible to work with materials that are immediately available to us.
I am so excited to get these in your hands, as I believe that they will define your summer days!
