Boho Top - "Memena" in lavender
Ease into summer with this Boho Top.
It is made of lavender fabric handwoven in north Luzon, Philippines. We call it "Memena" - Filipino baby-talk for "sleep now" - because this soft fabric is traditionally used to make blankets.
The straps are made of our signature handsewn fabric components. The fabric is made from recycled luxe fabric.
- 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 we get our handwoven fabric after months of anticipated waiting, we hand-cut circles 2.5 inches from the cloth.
These circles are then picked up by the women we work with from a disadvantaged community in Las Pinas. They hand-sew and fill each of these circles to make the fabric components.
When the components find their way back into our workshop, we employ more hand-sewing techniques to transform them into the objects our customers enjoy.
