The Chindit Badge Bright-Blue Zip up Hoodie by Disorder is a limited edition sustainable garment, hand made by Disorder. This hoodie is organic cotton printed with non-toxic inks. The inspiration for this design is the Chindith, mythical lion statue. You will find a pair outside the entrance to every Buddhist Temple protecting the devotees from evil spirits.
The Disorder Chindit Badge also references to the ‘Chindits’, a group of Allied soldiers, that resisted the Japanese invasion of Burma, during WW2. Their name was inspired by these same Statuesque Buddhist Temple Guardians. So hopefully when you wear this hoodie, you may also gain some protection from evil spirts or at least look stylish while trying.
The Chindit Badge Bright-Blue Hoody is a limited edition print, made to order. This helps reduce unnecessary clothing waste and ensures you receive a unique slow fashion garment. This means it will take us a little longer to make the garment and get it to you. However, it will make it all the more special when you receive it.
This Chindit Badge Bright-Blue Hoodie is a slow fashion garment . Slow fashion is the opposite to fast fashion and part of the “slow movement“, which advocates for manufacturing in respect to people, environment and animals. As such, contrary to industrial fashion practices, slow fashion involves local artisans and the use of eco-friendly materials. This has the goal of preserving crafts and the environment and, ultimately, provide value to both consumers and producers.
Disorder is a slow fashion brand. This means we don’t compromise our design principles and environmental ideas, when we make our clothing. We are ideologically opposed to fast fashion and its disposable attitude towards clothing. It is important to value the clothing we design and make. We design and make our clothing to last. Disorder doesn’t design clothing to be thrown away. We design and make our clothing to be worn and loved. Over and over again.
All of the garments in Disorder’s apparel range are printed by our award winning team in Birmingham, England. We use local suppliers as often as we can, because we believe in reinvesting in our community. We only use water soluble inks, that are certified non toxic and therefore don’t damage the environment. We are always trying to improve the quality and reduce the environmental impact of our designs.
