Premium shopping and menswear

We offer the best menswear, all naturally dyed. The premier dye of the ancient world was “Porphyra” or Tyrian purple, which is a reddish-purple natural dye extracted from a particular species of sea snail. The final product was worth it's weight in gold, because it required thousands of snails just to produce one gram of dye. Only for royalty og very wealthy people could afford this. “Porphyra” did not fade but actually became brighter and more intense with weathering and sunlight. The Greek islands, amongst which Rhodes, Kos, Amorgos, Chios and Crete, were renowned for its production. The other dyes with herbs and fruits were also intended for the wealthy, as colored garments were a luxury in antiquity. Common people’s clothes were undyed.
