Say goodbye to boring. Post-Imperial is a menswear brand with a strong sense of optimism for the future and a focus on color, pattern and process. Their fabrics are something extra special. They are treated in Nigeria through a process called Adire – a rare hand dying process developed by the Yorubas in the southwest region of Nigeria. Prior to dyeing, the artist hand paints patterns using a cassava starch or wax base that acts as the resist due. The painted fabric is the dipped in a vat of dye, and then treated and rewashed in hot water. See, told you they were special. Their goal through all of this is to always design for now by shaping cultural concepts through a modern perspective. Cool, right?
Let's see what we can do about that.
