Post-Imperial is a menswear brand with a strong sense of optimism for the future and a focus on color, pattern, and process. The brand treats its fabrics in Nigeria through a process called Adire.- a rare hand dyeing process developed by the Yorubas in the Southwest region of Nigeria. Prior to dyeing, the artist hand paints patterns using a cassava starch or wax base that acts as the resist dye. The painted fabric is then dipped in a vat of dye, and then treated and rewashed in hot water. All fabrics are shipped to the Post Imperial factory in New York where the brand cuts and sews its products. Its goal is to always design for now by shaping cultural concepts through a modern perspective.
