Non-toxic & Collaborative

These pants are made from soft twill, organic cotton from Pakistan.  They encourage consumers to create a connection with their clothing by customizing them with their own design. The pants come with a stencil, dye paste ingredients and instructions. The sample pants shown illustrate one creative application. The sides are hand- painted using black walnut and cutch dye pastes.

    The “open design” or DIY concept is really great. Maybe you can expand on this idea with other methods like resist dyeing, and dip dyeing? The style of the pants works well with the concept also. They have a retro look that makes me think about the late 60’s youth culture that was concerned with individualism and non-conformist dogma. Also, good choice for the dye pastes…black walnut doesn’t need a mordant and cutch is very color fast.
