When 3sixteen first started to work with India, they knew they wanted to explore their vast archives of hand loomed indigo fabrics. For the Vacation Shirt, they selected an incredible handloom pattern and tweaked it with indigo yarns. Natural, unbleached cotton fibers with visible seed specks and striation serve as the base with secondary fibers of an unevenly indigo dyed cotton. The inconsistent dye translates into an ombre appearance for each stripe on the shirt. These uneven fibers are woven into the warp and weft, which creates a crosshatched, almost ikat look. Both fabrics are incredibly breathable and textured. Due to the handmade nature of the fabrics, each shirt will be completely unique, even if unnoticeable. The Vacation Shirt features an open collar with a loop closure and 3siteen's signature crossed back yoke.
