The Story of the Les Bohèmes Print
The Les Bohèmes design I use for the textile print, is taken from the Les Bohèmes logo and taches. The Paisley looking design has an ancient Maori influence, which conjures up visions of wild nature and bamboo villages. The design has also been used for the Ndygo logo.
I used the print design in the ECONYL® and Bamboo Cotton collections, by having it dyed with earth friendly dyes and silk screen handprinted with non toxic materials in a small artisan workshop in Indonesia. They do such a meticulous job to achieve the highest quality print, after washing my leggings countless times, the design is like new.
I also love the contrast of the leaves and flowers against the thick plain coloured waistband on the workout pants.
