The Washed Indigo Pindot is one of Corridor's more involved shirts. The shirt begins as two separate yarns: a natural, deep indigo and a simple white yarn. The fabric is milled as a dobby where the white thread is fed through the indigo fabric to create a stark blue/white contrast with depth (because the white thread is sunk behind).
The shirt is then sewed by Corridor's partner factory in Chennai and, finally, heavily washed to remove the top layer of indigo, revealing a deep depth of color. The shirt will age beautifully over time and I hope that you wear it out, repair it, and do it all again until its dust. I’d be grateful.
Tailoring: The shirt was sewn responsibly by the good people and tailors at the Original Madras Trading Company in Madras (Chennai), India.
Responsibility: What does responsibility mean? People talk a lot about transparency and sustainability. I think the sum is responsibility. For Corridor, this means that they actually work in the factory with the tailors every season to create the garments and ensure the workshops are environmentally certified and (ISO-9001) and socially accountable (SA 8000). You can feel good knowing where and how the garment was made.
