When quilted jacket liners being worn as standalone outerwear arose from the world of military centered fashion, it was like the F-86 Sabre and MiG-15 ushering in the jet fighter age in the 1950s. Maharishi applying their renowned upcylcing reconstruction techniques is more like the late 80s introduction of supersonic heavy bombers B-1B Lancer and Tu-160 Blackjack; it was previously unimaginable, right up until it wasn't.
Referencing the Hokusai artwork ‘Phantom of Kohada Koheiji’, the inverted skull filled with psychoactive plants (Morning Glory, Belladonna, Cytisus Canariensis and Hyoscyamus Niger) draws inspiration from Tibetan buddhists use of a human skull from their revered ancestors to prepare sacred herbal medicines and elixirs.
Organic cotton is a maharishi staple. Essential to every season, the fabric is FairTrade, environmentally friendly, regenerative and has a lighter carbon footprint than non-organic cotton. Maharishi Original Snopants feature the signature Snobutton System, allowing pants to be worn as either shorts, three-quarter length or full length.
This style utilises a patented Snocord System, making both the waist and hem fully adjustable, while excess drawcord is concealed within the pockets or internal hem. The patented Temple Bead is a simple bead produced exclusively for maharishi in Switzerland by long term military zip provider, riri. The bead allows for elasticated cord to pass through when stretched, but holds the cord in place when relaxed. It's the only one part stopper ever designed.
