Indi + Ash create extremely thoughtful garments, employing a variety of traditional manufacturing techniques and reinvesting profit into the artisans responsible for their production, as well as the communities they live in. From hand-weaving to hand-knitting, traditional dyeing methods, and atelier-style production, they work to create truly unique and beautiful pieces that highlight the skill and history of the craftspeople who make them.

Inspired by vintage USMC work trousers, the Obelisk Shorts are a short leg version of Indi + Ash's Obelisk Pants - cut with a relaxed fit and drawstring waistband. With a medium high rise, comfortable thighs, and a respectably short inseam, they're an extremely versatile and unisex fit, styling easily into all manner of different outfits.

It's made from Indi + Ash's handwoven natural denim, a beautiful 100% cotton fabric with no dye and subtle textural variation. The natural fabric features traces of cracked cotton seeds and and a slightly irregular tension throughout, giving it a unique texture and face. It's surprisingly soft from day one, despite it's respectable medium weight, and drapes excellently for a summer fabric.

Just like the pants that inspired them, these feature two roomy patch pockets on the front and back, giving you plenty of space to put your things, and a casual + unconcerned demeanor. An adjustable drawstring runs through the inside of the waistband, with metal grommet exits on either side of the fly button, which is made from a natural corozo nut.

True to size with a relaxed fit. Wash cold and hang dry.
