Biasha Palazzo Pants dark indigo
Worn here with our Original Button-Down.
Looks great layered with My Favorite Shirt.
These were inspired by the men's pants of the Miao minority in Biasha village, the last gunner tribe in China. Boys and men wear these pants as a daily uniform, made lovingly by the mother of the family.
Made higher-wasted for women, side pockets are closed with fabric knot buttons. Tactile hand-embroidered stitches follow the seams while cozy hand-spun French seams follow the curves of your body. They follow a zero-waste construction where the full-width of the fabric is used from selvedge-to-selvedge.
Bathed in mountain water and hung to dry in the sun, this piece of clothing has never touched a machine. The fabric comes directly from the earth and is the closest to wearing nature on your skin.
Dyed in natural indigo six times over two weeks to achieve a deep saturation. As an herbal medicine, indigo is a natural antiseptic and cooling on the skin. Farmers wear indigo-dyed clothing in the fields because it repels insects and mosquitos.
The original prototype was made for a Smithsonian exhibition and took two years to perfect.
Looks great with sandals or white sneakers.
