Hul le Kes
The pair of high waisted linen trousers you can wear on any sunny day. Linen is ideal in spring and summer. A string belt give the perfect fit to anyone wearing it.
These trousers are antique linens we found in France and made by hand in our studio in Arnhem, the Netherlands. This method of upcycling makes every piece unique and each of these pants will therefore come with its own registration number and Hul le Kes passport.
Made to order helps us create only the items we need. It’s a benefit for you, us and the environment.
"Every good painter paints what he is"
This garment is named after the American abstract expressionist painter Jackson Pollock (1912-1956). Pollock used liquid household paint and reached the height of his fame in the late 40’s, his ‘drip period’. He painted by pouring and dripping paint on canvas. Peggy Guggenheim even commissioned Pollock to paint a 2,5 by 6 meter mural in her house. Pollock’s unique way of painting in this period is a big inspiration to the way Hul le Kes uses natural dye.
These trousers are available in size 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5. Corresponding with the sizes below.
