Our Linen camp shirts are handmade from premium lightweight linen. Each shirt features two patchwork crochet pockets hand sewn at our atelier using crochet handmade by our co-op of almost 50 local women in Marrakech.
Each linen shirt boasts a relaxed, boxy fit with a straight hem and short sleeves. Each shirt is breathable, will keep you cool, and should be styled not only for the scorching summer months, but for all the warm weather getaways throughout the year.
The camp shirt styles dates back to the 19th century in Cuba, the Philippines, and Mexico. In Cuba, the camp shirt style was related closely to the the ‘Guayabera’, a relaxed work shirt with a loose fitting collar. The lightweight work shirts were worn by farmers to keep cool outdoors and through warmer conditions.
In the 1950's and 60's, Cuban immigrants arriving in New York and Miami introduced the style to North America. At the time of its introduction, the camp collar shirt was so unlike other dress shirts worn by Americans. Read the brief history on the camp shirt style here.
