The Ahti shirt in Henna and Lilac are a part of the Fall 2019 Seventh wave – collection, which is inspired by the Archipelago Sea. The shapes of the waves and islands, the shades of the sea. The feel of the rock and sand beneath the toes, the sound of the storm wind. The scent of salt in the air.
When choosing the right fabric for the Ahti shirt, we thought about the type of material that best suits the purpose of the garment in question. After that, we buy a small batch for prototype work, from which we sew a sample piece. We will take the sample and study how the fabric can withstand washing and use. Everyday wear should be machine-washable.
For sustainable fashion, dyeing is an environmentally harmful process that should be considered. However, the use of colors is so important to the appearance of the garment that we did not want to give it up. 100% cotton was chosen, because in order to make it possible and sensible to recycle the garment industrially, the fabrics should not be mixed with petroleum-based synthetic fibers. In addition, it is recommended that the fabrics be made from a single fiber raw material.
