ORCHARD & LUDLOW STREET, NYC, USA
from where you are
Loosely bordered by Chinatown, NoLita and the East Village in the trendy Lower East Side stands Orchard and Ludlow Streets in the heart of a traditionally working class and immigrant neigh-bourhood. Behind iconic open brick walls, zigzagging fire escapes and narrow alleyways, the area has undergone rapid gentrification but its historical feel remains. Stop by for a late-night cocktail, or get a sense of the area’s rich history with a visit to the Tenement Museum on Orchard.
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.
