Linen colour-block camisole top | Handmade women’s sustainable cami | Pink and orange abstract vest with straps | Ethical blouse tank
This is a vibrant linen colour-block cami top in orange and pink, perfect for spring/summer. This top is inspired by Mark Rothko’s ‘Red and Pink on Pink’. The top has small spaghetti straps and I line it at the top edge for a polished finish.
We hand make each top in our workshop in Nottingham, England. We also make-to-order, minimising fabric wastage.

I make the camisole top from European 100% linen fabric.
Linen is sustainable for a number of reasons. Not only is it durable and so long-lasting, but it is also biodegradable. Additionally, linen comes from the plant, flax. Growing flax is sustainable because it can grow in poor quality soil, it takes less water than standard cotton and uses significantly fewer pesticides. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation state that flax uses 13 times less pesticides than potatoes. Moreover, every part of the flax plant can lead to various products. This reduces waste and increases profits for farmers.
I used recycled fabric labels that is OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified. I also package the product in recycled paper and ship using reusable and compostable mailbags.
A great resource on sustainable fashion is the Fashion Revolution, including information on what to consider when choosing where and what to buy.
As a brand that value sustainability, we also strive to post informative content on sustainable matters on our Instagram account @fordandguy
Machine wash the linen colour-block cami at 30 degrees C. Drip dry and iron on medium heat. Do not bleach. To waste less water, energy and to make your clothes last longer, wash on cold, wash less often and don’t tumble dry.
