Price and Availability

  • Edition: each piece is one-of-a-kind
  • Price: $50

We have used the same basic pattern to make these shorts in a range of print fabrics. This means that for each kind of print, there is only one or two pieces available. We do not have every print available in every size (however all the prints are beautiful!).If you let us know your size, we can tell you which prints are available.
