Rumpled Cotton Gauze Top, Naturally Dyed With Ceiba Pochote Pod

  • Details
  • Share
  • This lovely and light as air gauzy cotton top is naturally hand-dyed in our studio with the husk of the Pochote (Ceiba) seed pod. The Ceiba "Pochote" tree is sacred to many cultures, particularly within Mexico's ancient Mayan culture. The tree is a representation of life, power, goodness, strength and unity, connecting the cosmos, earth, and underworld. We worked with a mezcal producer in the mountains of Oaxaca who has these trees on this land, to harvest them in November 2019 as part of our initiative to transition into an entirely sustainable/regenerative brand in five years time working with farming communities building our collections from the ground up, literally. 

    Please note that we keep limited stock in our showroom, and we are quickly transitioning to a made-to-order only capacity to avoid textile waste and to move forward with our goal to be 100% sustainable/regenerative zero waste business in 5 years time. 

    Turnaround time to make the item and then ship out is approximately about 2-3 weeks. Please let us know if you have any questions and send us an email to hola@mexchic.co

    Size: One Size fits all

    Color: Naturally Dyed with Ceiba, locally called Pochote.  Soft Desert Rose

    Material: 100% Cotton Mexican Gauze

    Dimensions: 50 cm wide x  55 cm long 

    Measurements are in cm and are based on the item lying flat, these items are pleated so the measurements are with pleats/wringkes and expand a great deal. They are generally intended to be one-size fits all

    Care: The pieces arrive lighty starched, with wear and each washing the starch disappears and the textile softens a great deal. Machine wash on delicate cycle, line dry or hand wash. If you hand wash, gently wring dry then twist up into a kind of knot and dry in a shady spot. both methods will maintain the natural pleated rumpled look. Keep this dress twisted and knotted to maintain the beautiful pleats. Any "imperfections" in color are intentional as the hand dyeing process is unique in that each dye bath creates a truly individual result. Colors may slightly vary.
