LA SEINE, PARIS, FRANCE
from where you are
777-kilometres long and spanned by 37 bridges within Paris, the Seine has been the heart of the city and its connection to the rest of France and the world. At different times a goddess, a path to invasion, a shipping route, and a source for the fountains of Versailles, it is a river both worn by time and used as the inspiration for writers, artists, singers, tourists, locals, and lovers alike.
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
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 tocreate haute couture. This shirt is made especially for you, so please don’t expect the sameproduction times as fast fashion.
