THE BOWMAN IKAT JUMPSUIT
The Bowman Ikat Jumpsuit is made from 4 meters of hand-dyed handwoven indigo Ikat made by our Indigo Grandmas in Sakon Nakhon. Traditionally worn by officials for special occasions, we used the 4 meters of fabric for a jumpsuit, fit for all occasions, even riding a bike at night with its reflective strips. Each Ikat pattern tells a story drawn from our Grandma's lives, environments or mythology. This Ikat pattern here is of a leaf of a tree commonly found in the Northeast of Thailand. Each Bowman Ikat Jumpsuit is unique and made to order as no Ikat panel is the ever the same.
The Bowman Ikat Jumpsuit is inspired by Dr. Bowman in Stanley Kubrick's Space Odyssey: 2001 for it is he who ventures to a new place and for most of the film he wears a jumpsuit, and like most of our heroes of Sci-Fi (and reality), the jumpsuit is key for safety, functionality and protection.
