Rosé Colored Bias-cut tank, Naturally Dyed with Ceiba Pochote Pod

  • Details
  • Share
  • This lovely and light-as-air gauzy cotton bias cut cotton tank 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. 

    Size: Small

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

    Material: 100% Cotton Mexican Gauze

    Bottom of strap to hem: 33 cm

    Measurements are in cm and are based on the item lying flat

    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.
