Maharishi Pearl Tiger Embroidered Sweat in Olive Green

This organic sweat hoody features an intricate freehand heart of tigers embroidery. 

Francis Ford Coppola’s classic 1979 film Apocalypse Now was based on Polish-English novelist Joseph Conrad’s 1899 book, about a voyage up the Congo River in the centre of Africa. Coppola switched the location to the Mekong River of Vietnam.

The novel, entitled “The Heart of Darkness”, and the tailor shop’s expansion to Tibet, inspired The Heart of Tygers hand-machined embroidery and the twist on Martin Luther King, Jr’s speech

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."

  • Hand-machined sleeve and hood embroidery
  • Pearl Squadron embroidered patch
  • Kangaroo pocket
  • Adjustable drawcord hood
  • Maharishi camo / reflective side seam label

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.
