Studio D'Artisan "Hundred Tigers" Aloha Shorts (Kurozome)
Iconic Aloha shorts with traditional Japanese dyeing techniques!
SDA has cooked up the ultimate beach shorts for summer, utilising traditional dyeing techniques dating back over 1,000 years. Originating from the Kyoto Montsuki dyeing tradition, these garments were worn by Buddhist priests and Samurai as formal attire. This dyeing method involves a slow and laborious process whereby base layers of red or indigo dye are applied before a natural black hand dye derived from betel nuts (Binroji) is applied multiple times. Each garment is hand-dyed by one of a small handful of highly skilled craftsmen, resulting in a super dark, ultimate-black colourway!
This specially developed 60% cotton, 40% polyester jacquard fabric has been slowly woven using vintage jacquard machines. This results in an eye-popping three-dimensional texture revealing the iconic hundred tigers (and pigs) Aloha shirt design! With time, these shorts will age to a soulful vintage look as the graphic design becomes more apparent!
Speaking of details, these shorts have twin waist pockets, one open back pocket and one buttoned back pocket for securing your valuables! The large engraved black urea button adds some tasteful tonal contrast!
