Blues Super Rugby Home Jersey Classic Style
Blues Super Rugby Home Jersey Classic StyleShow your support for the Blues this season with the official adidas Blues Super Rugby Home Jersey. The Blues design is based around the regions that make up the Blues franchise. This design is an evolution of the current Pasifika style design and celebrates the regions unique Polynesian heritage and culture. Within the intricate design are symbols that depict unity, pathways, teamwork, belonging, community and the individual’s journey with and within the team. Rangitoto Island, North Harbour (with the hibiscus and struts of the Harbour Bridge), Auckland (as the Tower and Cityscape) and Northland (as the Mighty Kauri Tree) are all depicted within the design. In doing so we pay respect to the people of these areas who make up the fan base and give the Blues there power and strength.Treated in a very traditional way the artists have taken much care to pay respect to the beautiful art of tapa and tatau.The design itself is woodcut.It has been drawn onto a flat block of wood and carved together by the artists. It is a very long, involved and precise process. The raised area of the wood is then inked and printed onto paper - then scanned and laid into the jersey pattern.This design is further accentuated and brought to life through the expressive dynamic Blue and rich contemporary monochrome crest, which clearly shows an advancement and modernization from the previous design.
