Short Sleeve Unisex Shirt | Chakra Wheel Print
Our Short Sleeve Unisex Button Shirt is a classic style that will become a staple for all genders, as we strongly believe that fashion is fluid and does not conform to any gender norms. This collared button-down shirt is back once again for Summer in a short sleeve design.
Made from 100% light hand-spun, hand-loomed Khadi which has been printed in our ‘We Are Freo’ Collection Chakra Wheel design, by local artist Dhruv Grover. Its bold print works with the organic texture of the cloth and looks perfect thrown over bathers, or left unbuttoned in the summer heat. With a crisp straight collar, a single wide front chest pocket and a single back yoke, this garment is highlighted by its natural wooden buttons. Looks great tucked into our tailored pants for a smart look ideal for corporate life, and the long line will also allow you to wear it untucked for a more relaxed look over matching pants or a skirt.
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.
