London-based tie-dye specialist Stain Shade has revealed a new capsule of upcycled Carhartt pieces. Created using 90s-inspired hand-dyeing techniques, the collection features a range of classic workwear styles including hard wearing trousers, chore coats and utility vests.
Due to the processes used to produce these items, no two pieces are exactly the same, although similar color profiles run across various pieces in the collection.
Speaking about the collection, Stain Shade founder James Brackenbury explained, “When I started Stain Shade, I didn’t start it necessarily as an eco-friendly company, but it kind of quickly became that when we realised the practices involved with commercial dyeing vs. hand dyeing and we quickly became quite passionate about all that. It has benefits attached to recycling and re-using, and everything that comes with that is less clothing that ends up in a landfill and I think that is needed and is a massive positive at the moment.”
