A stillsuit from the Emmy award-winning TV mini-series Dune, based on the original novel by Frank Herbert.
Stillsuits such as this can be seen in use by the Fremen, the indigenous population of the desert planet of Arrakis. Stillsuits were an ingenious invention of the incredibly dry planet, designed to collect moisture and feed the water back into the wearer’s mouth, leaving nothing of the valuable water to waste or evaporate unnecessarily.
The garment is made from green and yellow fabric with a padded spine protector and sections of rubber tubing attached to it, much of which has fallen off as the rubber has degraded. The stillsuit has a small, filled pouch on the front with a symbol drawn onto it in marker pen and brown canvas straps at the shoulder and around the waist.
The suit has been distressed to give it a worn look but remains in a good production-used condition.
Materials: Man-Made Woven Fibres, Foam, Ferrous Metals, Rubber.
