Hand painted organic strap top
Hand painted strap top in a lightweight 100% organic cotton twill
We make our hand painted strap top to-order from a lightweight 100% organic cotton twill. The design has a fitted top, with a peplum at the bottom and closes with ties at the front. It is a perfect piece for the summer and is comfortable, adjustable and flattering.
The fabric is dyed a cool pink and painted with a warm pink/orange. By mixing cool and warm tones, this top has a fresh, flattering and eye-catching look. By balancing cool with warm it also suits many skin tones and can be mixed and matched easily with other warm or cool clothing.
We hand dye the fabric first, then paint the fabric with a wash-safe fabric paint in a pattern inspired by Picasso’s works.
We hand make each blouse in our workshop in Nottingham, England. Each item is made-to-order, minimising fabric wastage.

Organic cotton is more sustainable than regular cotton because the process is based on long-term thinking. Organic cotton farming does not use synthetic insecticides, fungicides or fertilisers. Healthy soil is instead maintained through crop rotation. This prevents the loss of nutrients into water bodies and avoids both water pollution and the need for artificial fertilisers. Organic cotton farming also uses significantly less water than ordinary cotton, whereby farmers rely mainly on rainwater. Find out more about organic farming at the Textile Exchange!
The labels we use are made from recycled fabric that is OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified. We also package the product in recycled paper.
