urban bohemian

Let’s reconnect to natural fibres, embrace raw texture and celebrate the individuality of garments crafted by hand.

Boem is all about irregular stitches, loosely woven textiles, colours curated by mind and dyed by hand – by artisans. Its fabrics are not softened by chemicals or perfected by any processes. They are raw, textured, and earthy. Boem’s garments are designed to age with wear, fade to appear vintage, mould to your body, and become your favourite thing.

ABOUT

For the love of raw, untreated, organic linen

Linen is luxurious. The flax plants must be pulled from the ground to maintain the full length of the fibres, the plants are then left to soften so the fibres are easy to separate. After this process the fibres are collected, rolled and stored for three months for further softening. When they are soft enough they are then twisted and processed with a spinning technique. This lengthy, careful process is why linen is considered one of the most luxurious, earthy fabrics. Not only does linen look and feel amazing, it represents something much bigger. So let’s wear it – everyday.

It is something so simple, its beautiful

Linen possesses unique and special qualities. It is a hollow fibre made from flax, that is breathable and absorbent, so it keeps you dry and cool in summer and warm in the winter. It can absorb 20% of its weight in moisture before feeling wet, it is also anti-static and has a natural ph balance, making it amazing and healthy to wear- especially if you are a sensitive soul.

The Boem Ethos

Aiming to make the world a better, more holistic place, Boem creates a product that is made by hand, by artisans and that is not mass produced. Its linen is pure, 100% raw linen, which means it has not been chemically treated or blended with other fibres, it is durable and due to its processes, it is environmentally friendly and biodegradable. It is made from a resilient fibre, that can grow in poor soils, requiring very little to no fertiliser. It also requires minimal water to thrive, thus giving it a lower water footprint. Almost all of the flax plant is used too, so there is very little waste.

Herein lies the magic 

All of Boem’s garments are dyed by hand – one by one, either by dunking, pouring or immersing the fabric in dye. The pigments are measured by the naked eye and boiled in a beautiful copper vat over a gas burner. Hand dying possesses imperfect, irregular and charming qualities, ensuring that all products are original, authentic and one of a kind. When your hand dyed Boem piece is washed it will age a little, in the best possible way, offering a worn, stonewashed effect. This is where the magic happens, and after every wear, use or wash it will change a little more, becoming your most loved, cherished thing.
