Hul le Kes
The Hul le Kes Rodin shirt is the perfect shirt year-round. It is slightly oversized, and its classic look makes it suit everyone. The shirt is made by hand in our own studio in Arnhem, The Netherlands. We offer Rodin shirts made from striped cotton overstock or upcycled flannel.
This shirt is made by upcycling flannel bedding and dying it with madder, which gives the garment its unique colour. The dyeing process takes place in our own studio, by hand, which means that every garment’s colour will be slightly different.
Made to order helps us create only the items we need. It’s a benefit for you, us and the environment.
Because of its limited production, the Rodin shirt will have its own registration number and comes with a Hul le Kes passport.
Keeping the garment’s unique dyes will require a cold/warm hand-wash. At Hul le Kes we do not use heavy chemical dyes, as is the norm in the industry. We’re against the use of these as they damage the planet and all people that come in contact with them.
Because we don’t use these chemicals, the garment’s colours will fade eventually, depending on its use and washing. This is a natural process. However, there’s good news, we at Hul le Kes also offer a dyeing service.
"Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely"
Auguste René Rodin
The shirt bears the name of Parisian sculptor Auguste Rodin (1840 – 1917).
A traditionally schooled sculptor who approached his work like a craftsman.
One of his most famous works is Le Penseur (The Thinker). A bronze nude male figure sitting on a rock, his chin resting on his hand. Besides Rodin’s sculptures, his personal workwear is a great inspiration when designing Hul le Kes garments.
At Hul le Kes we do not want to focus on a particular gender. Therefore we work with our own size chart. Our sizes range from 1 to 4. When a garment is a one size fits all, it’s sized as A. You may order a shirt in size 1, 2 or 3.
