Crop Shirt Jacket - Check Mate Blockprint
Based on the block for our classic Unisex Button Up Shirt, this new classic is a cropped version that falls perfectly on the waistline to pair with a high-waisted pair of pants or low rise to show off a bit of skin. The Cropped Shirt doubles as a jacket – made from midweight Khadi Cotton, so it is heavy enough to provide warmth as a layering piece on slightly cooler days, while still being stylish and versatile.
“Coming back from France with a heart full, having reconnected with my family and my birth country, and at peace with myself, I realised I had designed a collection that provided me with a safe environment. Something known and familiar, like my beloved and calming Indigo, and the comfort of reds that bring me joy and energy – maybe the colours that represented a coming home for me.” – Gaelle on the significance of, and her connection to the Check Mate Print.
As always, our garments are designed in Fremantle, Western Australia. Made ethically from 100% hand-loomed Khadi Cotton in Pushkar, India by The Stitching Project. Designs are hand-carved onto wooden blocks. Then Pawan, our block printer at The Stitching Project, places each block onto the cloth after dipping the block into the ink board. This process is repeated hundred times over with amazing precision and experience to create the perfect patterns. All of our dyes are Global Organic Textile Standards (G.O.T.S.) Certified and our fabric and processes are Craftmark Certified. Each of our Garments is proudly signed by every craftsperson who has had a hand in making it.
