High Waisted Shorts - Burdock and Bird Print (8)

Tax included.

A fresh take on shorts. We created stylish, smooth line, stretchy, high waisted shorts to make it in to your regular wardrobe rotation. 

We designed this piece to be high waisted, but can also be worn lower on the hip to create extra length in the leg and a slightly dropped crotch look. 

Another cool thing about these shorts is the deep pockets that are stitched down to prevent extra bulk at your hip. 

We chose an elastic waistband rather that a flat band to finish these shorts to make them extra long lasting and make them withstand frequent use. We also are super proud of our biodegradable elastic made from organic cotton and natural latex, which happens to last longer than regular synthetic elastics. 

Pairs perfectly with our 4 Way Reversible Crop - Burdock and Bird Print, Linen Puff top - Burdock and Bird print, Tramp Coat - Burdock and Bird

More on this garment...

· Made in Australia ·
· Screen printed in Australia ·

We cut & sewed our debut collection in our small Lismore studio using our hands only. Our first collection sold out within hours, so we partnered with makers in Melbourne and Northern NSW to bring our pieces to life.

We are actively changing the fast fashion paradigm by choosing local manufacturing over cheaper offshore factories. We believe in inspiring others to do the same.

We tick the three big boxes:
Our knit fabric is made in Australia ✔️
Our screen-printing is done by a wife-husband duo in Melbourne, Australia ✔️
Our cutters and sewers are based in Collingwood, Australia ✔️

This is extremely rare. Clothing made locally, ethically with strong environmental values and NO waste.

High waisted
Super comfy stretchy elastic waistband
Stretch organic cotton fabric
Deep pockets which are stitched down for a smooth line
Mid-thigh length for a little extra coverage

We suggest using your waist measurement to find your size. We are finding that women are going down a size rather than up a size, generally.

If you'd like a more fitted look and don't mind a firm waistband, you can go a size down from your waist measurement.

If you know you have a sensitive abdomen, go for the size closest to your waist measurement.

Sally (blonde hair) wears a size 10. Her measurements are:
Height: 172cm
Bust: 96cm
Waist: 78cm
High Hip: 96cm
Low Hip: 101cm


Stretchy & breathable mid-weight

93% Certified Organic Cotton 7% Spandex
Knitted in Melbourne
Hand screen printed in Melbourne

This fabric is roughly 200gm with extra weight added from the ink which sits on top of the fabric.

We believe in this fabric and know it will last a very long time.

Expect this print to have a tacky feel at first as it's a light colour on a dark base, it uses a lot of ink. We assure you this softens with body heat, and further again with the first wash, becoming wonderfully soft yet sturdy.

The print will also crack when stretched out, but will come back once the tension is released. On areas where the fabric is under constant stretch, the cracking will remain. We however, love the look of this as it gives in an extra patina which works so perfectly with the lino prints. We love that the fabric develops character.

This fabric is wonderfully easy to care for! Just make sure you don't leave your piece on the line in the sun for a long time. Continued UV exposure will fade the organic dyes.

We recommend drying in the shade. When your piece needs a deep clean, hang it in the sun inside out for no longer than a day at a time.

Machine wash on a gentle cycle with cold water.

If you follow this guide your piece will last you ages!

Stunning print!

I love the comfort it’s next level comfort and the quality this fabric gives! Great shape and all round excellent design. I would like to wear these with a wider waist and leg hem (maybe double what it is) both on the shorts and other pants but that’s just my personal preference on hems not that the small hem is bad, that’s just my preference on bottoms. I’d still buy more prints regardless. All my pieces from you ladies have become staple pieces from my wardrobe.
I love the pockets! I LOVE knowing these are made in Australia with quality fabric that are eco conscious. Bring on slow fashion!!
I am a total fan and looking forward to what’s next.

Me in shorts? Hell yeah!

I am not a great shorts person. I always feel a bit like my legs are weird… but I went for it with the gold flannel flower high waisted shorts AND the matching crop top. And you know what? They look great and they feel great. Bring on the summer heat, I’m ready!
