Boho Top - blue
Ease into summer with this Boho Top. It is made of blue linen and our recycled fabric components as straps. An effortless way to make a statement.
The recycled textile comes from discontinued samples of luxe upholstery fabric, and from cuttings from designers' tables. Each Boho Top we make has its own unique combination of fabric - no two are ever the same.
The Boho Top is one-size-fits-all.
- Armpit to armpit, it has a maximum stretched length of 25 inches (for a total maximum of 50 inches around the chest).
- From armpit to hem, the length is 16 inches. It will fall around your hips.
- Straps cross at the back
Care: Gentle hand-washing.
How we make our fabric components:
When a box of designer's cuttings come to our workshop, we first carefully sort the pieces to see what we can use.
That done, we hand-cut circles 2.5 inches in diameter from the chosen cuttings. The circles are then picked up by the women we work with from an impoverished community in Las Pinas. They hand-sew and fill each of these circles to make the fabric components.
The components are then brought back to our workshop. Again using hand-sewing techniques, we transform them into the objects our customers enjoy.
It takes us a couple of hours to finish a bracelet, and then three complete days to sew a bolero. It is work that requires equal parts skill, dedication, and love.
