Sewn and produced locally in Borås, by the talented XV Production. XV Production is a group of young women who has taken the craftsmanship back to Borås - the textile centre of Sweden. This is a modern version of an old doctor's shirt/coat from France, with three pockets.
The fabric is a heavy and unique, laundered linen twill. This one is made to last a lifetime, seriously. It will become softer and softer and easily become your favourite piece in the wardrobe. A classic clothing item that will be passed on to your kids some day, then categorized as "vintage". Probably with the words "I didn't know you had cool clothes like these", or something similar.
The shirt is delivered in a handmade box from “Norrmalm's Kartongfabrik” in Stockholm. The small factory is a classical institution just like the legendary restaurant Tennstopet, which is actually located just next door. Only the box costs 78SEK/pcs and is a brilliant example of good craftsmanship, so don't throw it away. This is an excellent example of what we at E.SALMONSON are willing to do for the craft. For this money, we not only get a fantastic handmade and well-made box. No, we can also help and make sure that this craft does not disappear. If we aren’t ready to pay the price, this craft will eventually be forgotten and at the end be lost.
