Ometepe Island, Nicaragua
from where you are
Ometepe Island’s twin volcanoes emerge from the Cocibolca, the great Lake Nicaragua. Best described by Mark Twain 150 years ago, they are “two magnificent pyramids, clad in the softest and richest green (…), whose summits pierce the billowy clouds”.
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
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.
