Like all our garments, also these are made at our Manufacturing Studio in Arnhem, the Netherlands

The gathering and their adjustable string make our Pollock Shorts and Pollock Trousers a great garment for all different kinds of body shapes and genders.
“Painting is self-discovery”
These shorts are named after the American abstract expressionist painter Paul 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.
This garment is made from an ecological hemp/cotton mix fabric, naturally dyed with Indigo Blue. Please note that the Indigo blue will keep on giving off color for a while, so please do not sit on white furniture and wash it with like-colors during the first period.
Only 2 Pollock Shorts have been made from this material!
