Wild Sleeves Flared Top - Blue and White Check
A feminine silhouette with a surprising sleeve detail - flares with unexpected slits for easy movement. This is a fun wardrobe addition in a lightweight fabric that makes you feel fluid, with the freedom to go anywhere, just like the sun and rain in Mary Oliver's Wild Geese poem-
"Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
This 100-count cotton fabric has been woven using yarn-dyed natural indigo in the Purba Bardhaman weaving cluster of West Bengal, India. The cotton is grown locally and the yarn is dyed with natural indigo that is extracted from the Indigofera tinctoria plant [from the bean family]. Extracting natural indigo is a long and lengthy process and the dye is used for various dyeing and printing techniques.
Supporting and preserving this process of extracting natural dye, sourcing locally grown cotton, yarn dyeing and handloom weaving are important in preserving cultural heritage, providing income opportunities and developing eco-friendly, low carbon footprint options for clothing.
