Hul le Kes
Kapoor Tunic dyed
Our Kapoor tunic is inspired by sculptors’ wear. It’s slightly oversized and invites you to go and make something. We upcycled molton bedding to create this garment. Upcycling is one of the ways in which we extend the lifecycle of fabric and clothing. However, this does mean that our production is limited. The Kapoor is made here in our studio, by hand and then dyed by hand. We’ve used chestnuts and onion for the Kapoor Tunic. Due to its limited production, this item comes with its own registration number as well as a Hul le Kes passport.
Only 10 of these will be available.
Made to order helps us create only the items we need. It’s a benefit for you, us and the environment.
This item is dyed naturally. In keeping its unique dyes, you will need to hand-wash using luke warm water. We’re against the industry’s use of heavy chemical dyes, which damage the planet and people that come in contact with them. Dyeing naturally means that eventually colours will fade. As a solution we started the Hul le Kes dyeing service, which re-dyes items.
"Artists don’t make objects. Artists make mythologies."
This tunic is named after the Indian born British sculptor Anish Kapoor. Initially studying electrical engineering, Kapoor quit and left for Israel. There he decided to pursue art, he left Israel and attended Hornsey College of Art and Chelsea College of Arts. He’s lived in London ever since. His works are often biomorphic and have grown in scale along the length of his career. In 2013 he received knighthood for his services to visual arts.
At Hul le Kes we do not 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.
This tunic is a one size fits all, A.
