W'menswear for Quaker Marine Supply 'Mekong Sailing Hat'
We worked with our friends at Quaker Marine Supply Co. to create the Floodplains Collection, a series of shibori-dyed garments that take iconic Quaker Marine designs and dive a little deeper.
Prior to dying, each piece of fabric was hand sewn in specific shapes to create that distinct shibori pattern. The fabric was then repeatedly dipped into indigo dye vats to give the fabric a rich color and texture. Our favorite part? Thai indigo dye has a bit of a sweet tooth, thriving on a diet of bananas, tamarind and palm sugar, making it smell like a delicious tea. So when we say these garments are steeped in traditional dyeing techniques, we mean that literally. Take a close whiff of each piece of clothing and you’ll know what we’re talking about.
Enjoy this bucket in all its floppy glory. It is said that the QMS original was Hunter S. Thompson's hat of choice. This is an East Coast classic, also formerly referred to as the Standard Tennis Hat.
