We’ve seen a handful of companies incorporate the revered Japanese sashiko motif in the last couple of years, but no brands are doing it quite like this. FDMTL and Vans recently announced that they will be teaming up again to release the Dark Indigo Sashiko series using their ever-popular Sk8-Hi and Slip-On styles.
After releasing a similar collaboration last year, they changed it up this time around; they are dip-dyed in indigo with bright white stitching and soles to exemplify the contrasting pattern work. As is true to the technique, all of the fabrics were sourced in Okayama.
Scheduled to release sometime between January and February 2017.
