Our friends at Rooted Botanics plant-dyed some of our DIY (dye-it-yourself) shorts and the results are sooo organic 🌿

About Rooted Botanics

Rooted Botanics was founded by two best friends sharing a deep love for plants and the many blessings of the natural world. We’re both deeply enamored by flowers, trees - any landscape from the mountains to the sea. Rooted Botanics is the co-creation of our dream to live a more connected life with Mother Earth and the plants that speak to our souls.

Natural Dyes have an incredible history spanning cultures and centuries past. It is a beautiful, intricate, and delicate process that is not only a more ethically sustainable choice but also a traditional craft rooted and enriched with so much history.

These Hammies shorts are dyed by plants, passion, and love for the earth we all call our home.

Care instructions

  • Wash on a cold cycle
  • Use a PH-neutral detergent if possible 
  • Do not hang dry in the sun as it can make the color fade!


These shorts didn't shrink as much in the waist as expected, so they will fit 0.5-1.5" bigger than the normal Hammies short. If you have a pair of normal Hammies and there is a little room in them, we suggest sizing down in these shorts.

See our size guide for measurements for the men's and women's shorts.


About the Hammies short

The Hammies short is an old short for a new generation. This short style was popularized in the 1970s in Southern California and for a decade it was the staple of skateboarders, surfers, rollerskaters, camp counselors, Tom Selleck, and many more. In the mid-1980s, shorts got longer and pants got baggier and for the proceeding 3 decades, the shorts were forgotten (a period also known as The Shorts Dark Ages). Fast-forward to 2017: Hammies has revived the once forgotten shorts in all of their primary-colored and wide-waled corduroy glory and once again, all was right with the world.

In short, the Hammies short is a homage to a time when shorts were shorter, fuzzier, and more colorful. These are your mom's shorts!

  • 🌱 Stretch corduroy (98% cotton, 2% elastic)
  • 📏 2" inseam
