Ceylon Shirt | Size 1 

Made from Silk Cotton Blend 

Lucky Dip & Precinct 35 present the Ceylon shirt, a collaborative project between Tuhirangi Blair & Prakashan Sritharan

Continuing Lucky Dip’s study of fabric and its provenance, the Ceylon shirt is a study of exotic fabrics that are found in Sri Lanka. Motherland to Prak Sritharan, vintage garments worn by his grandparents (Sari’s & Sarongs) were sourced and deconstructed to create a canvas for a one-off style shirt that celebrates the vibrancy & heritage within everyday dress, unique to Sri Lanka and rest of South Asia. 

The Ceylon Shirt is a short sleeve shirt with revere collar. Features include flat felled seam construction, mock placket sleeve finish and natural calico reinforcement at facing and collar. Hand stamped at inside collar documenting the article code, production year and size. 

10% of each shirt sold will be donated to the Red Cross Pathways to Settlement programme for refugees arriving to Aotearoa.
