Two new cotton jersey tops from ‘Climate Revolution’ are now in Worlds End Shop.
In the World’s End Shop at the moment are 2 new/old designs, both using prints from North American Plains Indians. First shown in the 1982 Savages collection these designs are the ‘Savage Vest/Dress’ (£180) & the ‘Savage Jumper’ (£465).
These prints were originally sourced from the book Indian Rawhide: An American Folk Art, published by Oklahoma University & written by Mable Morrow (1975).
The Plains Indians (& these prints are from the Sioux) would paint these designs onto the rawhide ‘Parfleche’ bags which they used as panniers & trunks & also for shields as the leather was strong enough to stop arrows. The name ‘Parfleche’ is from the French ‘parer’, to parry or defend & from ‘fleche’ meaning arrow.
