The Koi Kimono T-Shirt by Disorder is an organic cotton, sustainably made t-shirt. This t-shirt is inspired by our travels around Asia, Japanese manga and Burmese Culture. In particular, while in the city of Mandalay, I was watching and sketching some Koi Carp swimming around a pool, as a women’s reflection appeared in the water. Merging with the swimming Koi, Thiri reflection moved across the waters surface. At this point I got the idea for the Koi Kimono T-Shirt.
This t-shirt is a slow fashion product meaning it is a one off unique t-shirt, hand painted to order. We only paint these t-shirt after you order them, as this helps reduce unnecessary clothing waste. It also ensures you receive a unique slow fashion garment. Slow fashion means things take a little longer little longer to get the garment to you, but makes it all the more special when you receive it.
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 fashion. 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 expert 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.
