HICK Nishi Noragi Jacket in Cream/Indigo Blockprint Cotton.

A simple Kimono style, taking ideas from a traditional Japanese farmers coat often constructed of left over cloth, giving a patchwork effect. This style of garment is known as a Noragi.

Two side pockets, top pocket, inside pocket, taped hem and sleeve, tie front.

Soft hand loomed and printed light Sakura ( Japanese for Cherry Blossom ) and Indigo dyed block batiked ( masked with wax ) cotton. These simple fabrics are filled with detail and imperfections generated at source. 

Ethically sourced and woven in India.

I would recommend that you wash on delicate, cold with a mild detergent and 3 tablespoons of white vinegar to fix the dyes. Or dry clean, Do Not Tumble Dry.

HICK

A collection designed and inspired from workwear once worn by my Grandfather, a factory worker from the Midlands and a shed-dweller from North Yorkshire.

My paternal Grandfather, George, was already retired when I was a boy and I would spend my summers with him and Grandma . We would take trips out in the old van he had converted into a camper, with the most amazing folding plywood roof light. We would eat homemade cakes and drink tea from enamel mugs.

I remember he had two distinct looks; a navy boiler suit with sheepskin gilet over the top, or a grey suit and white button down shirt on a Sunday. After he had showered, shaved and had a bath he would come down for Sunday lunch smelling of fresh crisp cologne with slicked Brylcreamed hair and a sharp moustache.

A simple but affective wardrobe.

HICK reflects his ideas and draws directly from these memories. 

Each piece shares a simple design narrative to create a strong practical look. 

Garments are cut and stitched by hand and constructed from ethically sourced cloth.
