'Lost Heritage' Rei Hamon x Wixii
Sheryl of Wixii emailed us a while ago about print she had in her home, which she loved and wanted to inquire about doing a fabric print with it. We loved working with Wixii on this beautiful print on silk and appreciate their use of natural fibres and boutique small run style. Their elegant design aesthetic made it an easy fit for us and it was a joy to see our Koro's print 'Lost Heritage' in another medium and executed with aroha.
Their vignette use of 'Lost Heritage' was carefully designed, to uphold the mana of the entire artwork.
Details: The Hamon Print Top is crafted from pure knitted silk with a hand screen printed design based off an original artwork by Rei Hamon. The Hamon top features a crew neck, long sleeves and is fitted to form. Available in deer/toi toi and seal/blue. Sanctioned by Hamon Art Family Archives, this collaboration with Wixii presents the 1971 artwork ‘Lost Heritage’ in a new light, while retaining the integrity of the entire image.
"Working alongside the Hamon family and our creatives in Nepal a contemporary view of the original artwork has been created in garment form. The Hamon top is a limited release offering in two colour ways. 100% Silk, designed in Aotearoa and made with love in Nepal. "
Ngā mihi to the Wixii team for a beautiful tribute to our koro.
