LAGOS SHIRT

Sale price Price $227.00 Regular price $350.00

This camp shirt is constructed from silk twill 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.
