Avraam Shorts in Facade Mist
BRAND PARTNER: NOST
These Avraam shorts are great for tropical summers and relaxed weekends. Comes with an elastic back and flat front waist detail with pull ties for a slimmer waistline. We added a contrast piping detail along the sides and bottom seam as a definitive touch. Pockets are concealed along the side seam for a more flattering cut that won’t flare out when you sit down.
Inspired by geometric sun-shading fins on a brutalist building circa 1980s, the Façade print is a love of all things architectural. Designed from scratch and carved on wood blocks, then carefully hand-printed on 100% organic cotton by artisans. All the colours used are eco-friendly and azo-free – gentle on the skin and kind to the planet. Available in two colour ways: Mist and Navy.
Fabrics & dyes NOST chooses raw fabrics that are produced and sourced sustainably, to reduce environmental impact in the farming and washing processes. They favour 100% organic cotton, handloom cotton, and deadstock fabric. The dyes used in their block-printing processes are either completely natural, made from plant bark, fruits, roots and iron crystals, or eco-friendly azo-free dyes which allow a wider variety of hues.
Production NOST designs each piece to be seasonless, refining the cut and details so they can be comfortably worn again and again.
NOST chooses to work with heritage craft artisan families and vulnerable communities in their making process, seeking to present their skills and talents to the world. They visit their makers a few times a year, partnering them to create beautiful, sustainable fabrics. This is done with 3 aims in mind:
1. Preserving craft heritage
2. Growing their Sewing For Impact (SFI) Community
3. Providing Safe & Fair Employment
