Banjul Linen Short - Viv Burgundy
Our house shorts are unisex and come in three signature colours - Jodhpur (Blue), Georgetown (Yellow) and Viv (Burgundy). The Banjul shorts can be paired perfectly with the Pondicherry Shirt or a t-shirt.
The shorts are named after the capital of the Gambia – a port town steeped in history, alive with trade, character and hustle.
The shorts are created using plain weave 228gsm pure linen which is hand cut and crafted by our atelier in Tuscany.
The style has turn-ups and pleats, side adjusters and an extended waistband. We have meticulously developed our shorts and trousers to flatter the wearer. The Banjul shorts have a very slight taper in the leg, finishing just above the knee with a 4cm turn-up.

The meeting of industrial designers Charles and Ray Eames and Jawaharlal Nehru inspires the background to our collection. They form a modern interpretation of what three visionary pioneers may well have worn to their inspired meeting today, possibly under a coconut tree sipping masala chai.
Jawaharlal Nehru, the first prime minister of the newly independent nation-state of India, invited the Eames’s to help provide a catalyst of change, newness and creativity for the developing country. The Eames’ were enlisted to assist with this challenge, along with a host of other scientists, engineers, designers, and architects from Europe and North America. Their frequent travel throughout the 1950s and 60s sparked a global fascination with non-west design, in film, architecture and exhibition. The Eames Report was the first attempt by a developing nation to utilise design principles as a tool for national regeneration. The many bright children seen in the villages inspired the report; curious, open, active, beautiful young people with tremendous potential.
