visvim continues probing the artisanal craftsmanship that goes into its clothes with a new Dissertation. This time, the feature centers around the hand-drawn illustrations seen on the brand’s Spring/Summer 2018 “Jumbo Hoodie.”

Created by craftspeople in a Kyoto dye studio, the pattern seen on visvim’s new hoodies is inspired by Japanese “Tegaki Yuzen” — handpainted kimono. The time-consuming technique requires artisans to draw with “dyes, pigments or special inks” to create the designs, which can take up to two full days per hoodie, which consists of 5 distinct panels of fabric. With many companies turning to machines and inkjet printers for quicker, cheaper and easier graphics, labels like visvim help keep these techniques alive.
