This Hul le Kes Rodin Shirt is part of our classics. It is a perfect shirt year-round with an slightly oversized fit and a perfect conversation piece on every occasion. The gathering at the back and sleeves are inspired by centuries old workwear of artists. Each panel of the shirt is made from another upcycled cotton bedding. That way each part of the garment is slightly different in its quality and texture. Our Rodin Shirt comes in all of our sizes from 0 to 5, have a look at the sizing tab below for more information about the Hul le Kes sizing.
Next to this version we also offer this upcylced Rodin Shirt in Acacia Brown, Plant Green, Flowers Yellow and Madder Pink.
“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 approaches 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.
This garment is made from old bedding fabrics. The beddings that are used are made of 100% cotton and collected via our recycling partners or via donations people have made. This garment has not been dyed by us.
Each panel comes from a different kind of bedding. That makes that the quality may differ and also the color differs on each panel. This makes each garment unique and shows you the beauty of imperfection.
At our Manufacturing Studio we have selected the best parts of these beddings, cleaned it and started the puzzle of combining the remaining parts from several beddings together. In some cases our Recovery Studio will make small repairs to the old material to make sure we can upcycle as much materials as possible.
