“Right from the start we planned to do it all by hand and not use any suppliers. We created everything from hand. Hand-dyed, hand-cut, hand-sewed, hand-stitched, hand-painted, handdetails. The main element which shined in our design was the fabric treatment. It’s a transfer process where you never really know the result you’ll get. We used our four-way dobby stretch fabric which is our performance fabric but we wanted to try and show it not looking so high-tech. We put it through a process of boiling, hand-painting, scrunching and saturating. Because the short was made local, we had to source materials local. A heavy-weight brass snap was sourced from a local boat shop.”

“I don’t think we could even price these trunks. That said, we could go down a limited-edition path, where we only make 200 trunks. We could dye the fabric locally and then construct it through our suppliers. Each trunk would come in a unique package and all would be one-of-a-kind through our hand-dyed treatment process. We would probably be looking at $150 apiece. Hoo! We could go down the avenue of mass-producing this trunk but its such a unique trunk it wouldn’t do it justice.”

“We were able to go through a design process without any real structure or limitations at all. It was a great way to work and build a lot of creative ideas which you don’t really get when you’re designing between retail and customer parameters.”
