Kolmanskop, Namibia


 from where you are

Kolmanskop was founded in the early 1900s when diamonds were found in the barren Namib Desert, just lying on the sand, waiting for someone to notice. With its own millionaires’ row, ballroom and theater, Kolmanskop thrived until more and purer diamonds were discovered further south. Today, the site has been invaded by dunes, a surreal testimony of a vanished world.

DESCRIPTION Inspired by the Piece Unique shirts, Kilometre takes the design to a whole new level by adding their own spin to it. Copying the original garment in two different fabrics and adding delicate embroideries of travel destinations to them, the shirts are instantly elevated in a casual, yet elegant way.

Hand embroidered in India, 100% cotton.

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 is made especially for you, so please don’t expect the same production times as fast fashion.
