PROCIDA, BAY OF NAPLES, ITALY
from where you are
Travellers visiting the Bay of Naples often rush to Godard-famous Capri or glamourous Ischia and tend to overlook the Bay’s smallest but most authentic island, Procida. Such a terrible mistake may have been to Procida’s benefit as it preserved the island from mass tourism. Refreshingly real, it is home to multicoloured houses, dreamy marinas and secret lemon groves. This fisherman’s paradise remains in a bygone era of simpler lifestyles and pleasures. Forget those overcrowded Italian resorts. Alongside locals, board the small ferry from Naples to Procida to enjoy its charms.
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.
