Why do we make so few sizes?


We pattern our clothing to fit as many bodies as we can. Less size variation also means less wasted fabric and less overproduction.


Clothing for men? Or women?

Postalco items have always been non gendered. Beginning with the very first Legal Envelopes we made back in 2000.

Material

Soft and breathable fabric woven on shuttle looms at a slower speed.

The looms make up for it with the character they give the material. This means a shirt that hangs differently and feels soft to the touch. 

 

Why shuttle looms?
Shuttle looms weave slowly. They leave space between the fibers. That gives the fabric a relaxed, comfortable feeling of vintage fabric. The weavers appreciate the unique quality of shuttle looms so much they took the time to take special care of these machines. Even after faster machines were invented. Shuttle looms require more attention. It takes longer and costs more. That's why not a lot of weavers still work this way. Woven in Japan at a mill with over 70 years of experience.
