Short Sleeve Top | Chakra Wheel Print
The Short Sleeve Top is a neat, round-neck shirt with soft, pre-cuffed sleeves that fall perfectly to allow for a flowy fit on the body. This is a great staple for anyone’s wardrobe, able to be paired with a neutral bottom such as jeans or a block colour, layered with a skivvy in the cooler months, or thrown over bathers and shorts in Summer.
Printed in our ‘We are Freo’ Collection Chakra Wheel Print, designed by Dhruv Grover. This print is a bold organic design, printed in indigo all over our light aran cotton that is so comfortable to wear on those warm days. Breathable, durable and trans-seasonal, the short sleeve top is easy to throw on and a race-out-the-door item of clothing, for a hot Summer print in your outfit when you’re on the run.
The Chakra Wheel Print is designed by local, independent artist Dhruv Grover, who comes from a background in Product and Graphic Design. The Ashoka Chakra wheel is situated in the middle of the Indian flag, and signifies that there is “life in movement and death in stagnation”. It represents the dynamics of peace and change, has deep roots in Dhruv’s cultural heritage, and also has nods to Fremantle as a port city in its similarity in design to a ship’s wheel. A print with such rich storytelling behind it, Dhruv describes his inspiration behind this print as “Life is a journey, wherever we go we must share our culture and keep the roots strong no matter where the wheel sways us”.
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 ink board. This process is repeated a 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.
