Bolero - black
Our handcrafted black bolero is a statement piece that you can glam up with a great dress or down with denims. Wear it two ways, as a bolero and as a cropped top (flip the garment, wear the back in front!).
This piece is 100% handsewn. A slow-fashion garment for the person who wants to make a statement about life, fashion, and consumption.
So please be patient and give us 10 days from the time you buy this product to when we ship it out to you.

How we make our fabric components:
First, we hand-cut circles 2.5 inches in diameter from the fabric. 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 our fabric components.
The pieces 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.
