Description

The Fluxus 03 pants return this season as part of visvim's extensive FW16 collection. Featured in a dense and smooth cotton corduroy, the Fluxus pants are mud dyed, an intensive and traditional process further explained by visvim: Dorozome, or mud dyeing, is a 1,300 year old technique from Amami Oshima that is used to produce the unique black color of the traditional Japanese silk garment, Oshima Tsumugi. A flowering plant known in Japan as sharinbai (Rhaphiolepis umbellata) is boiled down in a large vat for two days in order to create a liquid extract. A piece of fabric is then dipped repeatedly in this extract, and afterwards immersed in mud. This causes a chemical reaction between the acid pigment in the sharinbai extract and the iron in the mud, which gives birth to a deep, uniquely lustrous black dye. Mud-dyed garments are soft and pliant but hold their shape, and are also resistant to fire and dirt. Unfortunately, these unique dyeing techniques, along with the production of traditional Japanese garments, are becoming increasingly obsolete due to changes in modern lifestyles, with entire traditional production industries facing extinction. Cut with a perfected slim straight fit. Finishing details include: aged brass rivets and hardware, a zipper fly and a natural elk leather rear patch.
