Timeless - A beautiful shirt that proved too expensive to produce. It has a polyester warp, a cotton weft, and additional raised stripes of chenille. After the fabric is woven, a heat transfer print is applied. Since the cotton resists the transfer, it prints only on the polyester warp, giving it an almost translucent, diffused look.
"Crackle" was made in Japan and is very, very special. We had the warp-only printed in Kyoto (it's usually only done on high end kimonos these days). Only four of these were ever made. One is in my library. I am not sure of the location of two of them. This is the only one available for sale.
"Meander" uses my signature push-pull technique. Stripes in brilliant greens and purples are transformed into wiggling bands of texture. When you turn up the cuff of the shirt (see the close up on the let, you can just see the "inside" of the cuff peeking through), you will notice that the back of the fabric has a much skinnier stripe, and that there is no push-pull on this layer. This added detail makes the shirt even more special.
