BOURSE DU COMMERCE, PARIS, FRANCE
from where you are
Once a residence of Catherine de’ Medici, then a grain-trading market, and most recently the former Wall Street of Paris, the striking Bourse de Commerce has known many lives. Paris’s transportation hub Châtelet-Les Halles, and the city’s garment district surround the Bourse de Commerce. This area is a cross-section of Parisian life: here you’ll discover former working class areas, hangouts for kids from the suburbs, the posh boutiques hidden inside the Palais Royal, and some of the city’s most beautiful glass-roofed arcades.
DESCRIPTION These 19th century white dress-shirts, originally meant for men, come from the South of France. Extremely flexible they reflect light and have been used in movies like Gladiator or Lincoln. Made from linen, hemp or nettle, extremely durable, they can live for years. Kilometre reinvents this unique style by adding intricate embroideries with travel destinations on them to create a truly one of a kind piece.
Hand embroidered in Mexico, 100% linen. Available in one unique size. COLOUR WHITE
GOODIES All Kilometre products come with a passport (a travel guide matching the destination of the product + booklet about the brand and its history) and a “second skin”.
All Kilometre products are hand-woven and hand-embroidered, similar to the techniques used to create haute couture. This shirt was made especially for you, so please don’t expect the same production times as fast fashion.
