  • Description +

    Revival of the DANA LEE "Work Coat" (2012-2016)- a  relaxed, soft-shouldered jacket with enamelware buttons.  In addition to sizing-up the fit, a back seam has been introduced as well as a selvage-edge facing.


    This custom developed 3x1 neppy selvage is 9.5 ounces (medium weight) and has a crisp, sculptural body due to the bast-fibre fill. Each garment has been pre-laundered and air-dried for an easy, comfortable  feel.


    Woven on a 33" vintage Draper Shuttle Loom, the weft is of a smooth strong mill-surplus Hemp Yarn, and the warp is of Organic Upland Cotton grown by T.M.O.C.O., a cooperative of organic farmers in West Texas.  After the raw cotton is locally ginned (process of removing/ obtaining seeds) & carded (process of cleaning and webbing the fibres into a continuous form), the resulting soft sliver is spun into yarn by a mill in North Carolina- one of two small mills in the US that will spin organic cotton. The selvages of this narrow denim are gilded with Brown Organic Foxfibre®, a naturally coloured cotton grown & bred at Viriditas  Farm, Northern California, by farmer/ scientist Sally Fox. 


    Part of an evolving range of DLB soil-to-loom textiles woven in Pennsylvania


    Each garment is finished with a hand-chronicled label, tracing cotton's journey from farm-to-final-garment.
