Kai is genderless pants with a metal zipper and two pockets, one on the front and one on the back. It has belt loops to better adjust the size to the hip. It is a piece that takes care of the details, the finish, the cuts and the seams. It is made with fabrics that come from leftover stock, a way to dispose of fabrics that otherwise would not be reused and would generate more waste. Buying from leftover stock allows us to give a fabric a second chance.
Kai has been a name that has caught our attention for years and we wanted to put it on some garment. Our previous pant was called Kali and we believe that Kai is an improved extension of Kali. In Hawaiian it means ocean, but researching we have found more meanings.
The one that has surprised us the most is the Kai Kai of the Rapa Nui culture, an ancient tradition that tries to shape different figures with threads with the idea of illustrating a story. And since we work with threads to tell stories, ours, in the form of clothing, we thought the name is perfect!
