Relaxed Band Collar Shirt in Indigo Merino Wool Ikat
Woven in a flowing multi-gradient naturally dyed indigo ikat from lightweight Merino wool, this distinctive casual top has a relaxed, boxy silhouette with half length sleeves and an extended hem. The fabric has a weight and handfeel strikingly similar to linen, making it a perfect piece for transitional weather in fall and spring where you want all the benefits of wool without the weight of true winterwear.
Features angled welt pockets at the hips for keeping cozy or stashing things while out and about, and corozo buttons with a single hand-embroidered button at the collar.
Ikat weaves are made by space-dyeing yarns to create variations in color which are then woven precisely to align those yarn variations to form patterns in the finished cloth. This technique requires incredible foresight and skill, and is adaptable to many styles.
Bridging traditional Indian textile arts and contemporary design, Mia Morikawa and Shani Himanshu's 11.11 / eleven eleven works with handloomed fabrics and traditional plant dyes to produce easy-wearing, sometimes virtuosic, versatile pieces to fit a modern lifestyle.
