Origin: Savida Soft Touch Vest
Previously white, we gave this top a sporty twist, by adding some shibori work to it.
Made from 95% meryl (contains more than 50% recycled material) and 5% lycra this vest is stretchy with a silk like texture and an inbuilt breast support. Hand dyed with Organic indigo, it is a vibrant blue with white details. Because its stretchy its great for all sizes and shapes.Vest
Note on Natural Dyes
All our work is designed for long lasting colour. Natural dyes will be uneven due to being natural, but especially with eco print. There is a worry about naturally dyed clothing fading fast, but that is just a lack of knowledge about proper mordanting and dyeing practices. Sure, some dyes will last longer than others, but that is the case with any dye. However, in order to keep it at its best:
Caring for a naturally dyed garment
Handwash ideally or machine wash cold or 30C degrees on delicate or wool setting
Only use mild detergent - detergent for wool and silk is best
Wash, dry and store inside out and away from direct light. (Sunlight or indoor light)
