 from where you are

The small town of Järpen is lost in the vast, snowy whiteness of the middle of nowhere – Stockholm is 600km away. Often overlooked by travellers due to its remote location, the region is home to the Southern Sami people who have their own unique language and lifestyle, both of which are in danger of disappearing. Immerse yourself in their rich history and culture of reindeer herding, hunting, and stunning handicrafts before it’s too late.

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.

Size: Taille Unique
Color: White
Fabric: 100% linen
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 to create haute couture. This shirt is made especially for you, so please don’t expect the same production times as fast fashion.
