For our second collaboration with Standard Issue, we followed up on an idea from our initial design trip to India. While visiting our block printers in Jaipur, we noticed the artisans using cuttings of pristine white cotton to clean their hands after mixing each new color to be blocked. At the day's end, these bits of pigment-splashed fabric reminded us more of Pollack's canvasses than the hand towels they actually were. With this in mind, we sent these same printers fifty of our favorite tee - Standard Issue’s LA-made, ten ounce, ring-spun white cotton - and asked if they would incorporate them into their daily routine in the same way. Upon completion, half of the tees were set aside and the balance were triple-dipped in natural indigo dye. All have been washed to remove excess pigment, hand-stamped with their size and edition number and have a hand-sewn 18 East Bhuti embroidered patch at the left hem.
Machine was on cold and hang dry.
This garment runs true to size. Size up for a slouchier fit.
*Please note that due to the unique production and dying process, each tee is different. The one you receive will vary from the one in the images here.
