Scarti-Lab Fall Winter ’15 Denim Shirt

The Italian clothing company Scarti-Lab has a true unique signature. With every collection they will take you back in the workwear time, the origin of the Italian workers. They mix the authentic high standard Italian craftsmanship with old school silhouettes. These are the perfect ingredients from the successful Scarti-Lab brand. Every season they drop a total new line from chino’s, jeans, shirts, vests and jackets. For Fall Winter 2015 they made a really nice master piece in their collection. It’s a vintage inspired workwear denim shirt. The shirt has an awesome finish which you see at original vintage pieces. Normally these kind of finishes are ‘natural finishes’ which can only be created by time of wear. Big bravo for this great highlight in your new collection guys!

Kurt’s Amsterdam – T-shirts Made From Hemp

naamloos

My buddy Sebastian Gerritsen from Kurt’s Amsterdam launched his fresh Kickstarter project this week. Sebastian started his brand a couple of years ago with beautiful handwoven scarves. After this success he added a classic workwear jacket in his collection, also handmade, handwoven and coloured with natural indigo. With his Kickstarter project he want to promote his new t-shirt range which is made from hemp and natural indigo.

Sebastian Gerritsen – Founder Kurt’s Amsterdam

The new t-shirts range is made from high quality hemp with beautiful and modern designs, that are durable and are produced locally by real craftsmen. With the combination of hemp and natural indigo the unique t-shirts are made from sustainable materials, printed with traditional techniques of silk screening or dyed in indigo.

With Kurt’s he believes that he should again follow his heart when making clothing. Something which the fashion industry of today has lost when fast fashion came to the stage. With that, a few beautiful and sustainable techniques and crafts have been forgotten. That’s what he want to change. All the t-shirts are manufactured in Porto, Portugal.

He took a deep dive into the old techniques, fibers and production processes and found the answer in hemp, natural indigo dying and silkscreen printing. Hemp is a long forgotten and truly sustainable fiber that is comfortable, strong and breathable. In their opinion it is the perfect material to make clothing. In silkscreen printing and natural indigo dying we came upon the workmanship we were looking for. At Kurt’s they share a love for natural indigo (indigofera tinctoria Linn), a central theme used in all of their products.
