It’s not summer without shorts, in a lightweight organic bamboo viscose, lined with organic cotton poplin, our Embroidered Summer Shorts are the perfect way to stay cool this summer. The shorts feature a digital embroidered artwork entitled Chaos by artist and collaborator Melissa Kitty Jarram, with an elasticated waistband and pockets.
Made from light weight organic bamboo viscose, lined with organic cotton poplin with embroidery details by Bow Sewing Centre. The shorts are made in England at Making for Change – a social manufacturing project based inside HMP Downview and in Poplar, supporting and training participants with makers skills and qualifications.
The Embroidered Summer Shorts are a part of our All Our Stories SS22 collection, inspired by our continued work with East London grassroots organisation, The Magpie Project – a charity that supports women and children who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Artist Melissa Kitty Jarram ran storytelling workshops with the families at Magpie Project, and illustrated the magical narratives they shared. The artworks were inspired by the folklore passed from generation to generation and childhood stories that continue to inform us in our adult lives.
