cleofa top - upcycled from a vintage crocheted blanket
The Cleofa started out as a crocheted vintage blanket.
We have recycled it into this playful top, with ruffled sleeves and fun tie closures at the back.
This is part of Re-Love, a small collection that grew out of our efforts to recycle, combined with our infatuation with the handcrafted quality of vintage tablecloths, runners, blankets, and quilts.
Artist Nica Cosio helps us model the Cleofa. The former Manila resident shows us slices of her new life in La Union in these photos.
As they are made out of vintage found fabric, items in our Re-Love collection are limited edition. We only made two Cleofas.
Size Guide -
The tie closure at the back makes it so you can adjust the top to fit multiple sizes. Bustier individuals may find that the Cleofa leaves the middle of their backs exposed. You can wear a bandeau bra if you want to keep things modest.
Best fits XS to M.
Fits from bustline 32 to 38 inches; length is 22 inches; strap drop is 6.5 inches.
Our model Nica is 5 feet, and usually wears a size S
Care: Handwashing recommended; or machine-wash cold on delicate cycle. Iron the cotton parts on medium heat.
* Please note that due to its vintage nature, this garment may have some signs of wear.*
