Boho Top - "Memena" in red-orange

Regular price ₱1,655.00

So easy to wear, this Boho Top is a quick way to add a global flavor to your closet. Great to wear with denims, or with shorts. 

It is made of patterned red-orange fabric handwoven in north Luzon, Philippines. The soft fabric is traditionally used to make blankets. We call the collection "Memena,"  Filipino baby talk for "sleep now."

The straps are made of our signature handsewn fabric components. 

This fits Small to Medium:

  • Armpit to armpit, it has a maximum stretched length of 20 inches (for a total maximum of 40 inches around the chest).
  • From armpit to hem, the length is 15 inches. It will fall around  your first hip.
  • Straps cross at the back

Care: Gentle hand-washing. 

Free shipping in the Philippines.

How we make our fabric components:

We hand-cut circles 2.5 inches from 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.

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.
