Shore Shirt - Indigo Bootleg Block


The "Bootleg Block" series pays homage to artisanal fakes found across India. It references the bizarro world of marketplace copies made by small scale craftspeople often “branded" with global brand names purely as decoration.

We asked one of our block printing partners, Ashwin and his family, to interpret what this might mean for Story MFG. The result is the "Bootleg Block” - hand block printed fabrics in lightweight organic cotton available in two designs and colourways for this drop. Both fabrics are entirely naturally dyed, made from organic plant materials, and printed using hand carved blocks. Available in our oversized Shore Shirt and Bridge Shorts. 

Note: All orders on Bootleg Block items will be sent on Tuesday 28th.
