As I was growing up, gingham's annual appearance marked the true beginning of Summer. Seemingly overnight, tablecloths, bedspreads, strappy summer dresses and Dad's bow ties colluded in a stripe-on-stripe insistence that the hot, bright season was upon us.
This tank is woven in the same spirit, coaxing harmony between the natural white of West Texas organic cotton and the rosy brown of Sally Fox's naturally colored cotton. Plain weave yields a lightweight cloth you'll want to wear whenever its warm.
Each garment is hand sewn by Jisun Lee using a freehand approach to single needle construction. Meticulous tailoring details include french seams throughout the garment. Sleeve and neck openings are bound with hand woven bias. This high-craft approach to tailoring requires advanced sewing expertise and retains beautiful evidence of the hand.
- 100% organic cotton grown in West Texas and spun in North Carolina woven with 100% organic, Bioydynamic naturally colored cotton grown by Sally Fox in Capay Valley, CA
- Hand woven in Hillsborough, NC on an Ahrens Violette mechanical dobby loom
Sizing and Fit: Recommended for US size 0-6/8; Bust: 19", Length 27"
Care: We've washed the tank in warm water and tumble dried it on low to finish the weaving process. We recommend that you wash it by hand in cold water with gentle soap. A good pressing with steam will return the cotton to it's current lustrous state.
Minor imperfections are inherent to the hand crafted process and should be celebrated as such.
