KOLMANSKOP, NAMIBIA, AFRICA
from where you are
A ghost town now, this was once a rich village where diamond mines were found. Its habitants started leaving after the decline of diamond output, but tourists still walk through their houses, now buried in knee deep sand.
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. Each piece takes 3 months to embroider.
Hand embroidered in Mexico
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-made; similar to the techniques used to create haute couture. This shirt is made especially for you, so please don’t expect the same production times as fast fashion.
