Ancash Short


The high-waisted Ancash Short mimics the dramatic sharp shape of a dragon’s wing. The short features a custom blue-flame dragon print hand illustrated in the same style used in ancient Greek pottery. Each grommet lining the bottom seams of the short is adorned with a bullring referencing the cattle herded in the ancient Greek Myth of Geryon. Crafted from a twill blend of organic hemp and cotton, this short is soft to the touch while providing durable, long-lasting wear.
