Indigo Linen Gingham LS
This item is final sale and not eligible for return or exchange. Please allow extended shipping time on all sale times.
They say gingham is dead, but not in this form - especially in this breezy summer linen. The shirt's special appeal comes from the wash and dye process. Originally a deep indigo, the shirt is over-washed- removing the indigo and leaving a summer blue reminiscent of the sea or a favorite pair of jeans.
The linen is dense but soft, perfect for spring and summer, and can carry you through much of the fall. For me, linen is amongst my favorites to wear because it doesn't stick to your skin. All fabrics have their specific properties that make them special, so for me, this is the one to wear on a summer evening- strolling, eating outside, and generally feeling relaxed.

What does responsibility mean? People talk a lot about transparency and sustainability. I think the sum is responsibility. For Corridor, this means that we actually work in the factory with the tailors every season to create the garments and ensure the workshops are environmentally certified (ISO 9001) and socially accountable (SA 8000). You can feel good knowing where and how the garment was made.
This garment was a made in 3rd generation, open air workshop with on site day care, garden, paying a living wage to the artisans who made the goods. The workshop is located in Madras, India and melds the new (Japanese sewing machines) and the old (hand embroidery, hand loomed fabrics, natural dying) for a product that is authentic and contemporary. This is a mostly woman operated factory and is partnered with a rehabilitation center for women encountering domestic violence. We work out of the workshop for approximately two months of the year.
