Hand painted and hand dyed tie-back top in a lightweight 100% organic cotton twill


We make our hand painted tie-back 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 a tie at the back.  It is a perfect piece for the summer and is comfortable, adjustable and flattering. We hand dye the fabric first, then paint the fabric with a wash-safe fabric paint in a pattern inspired by Picasso’s works. The fabric is hand dyed a lilac and painted with a dark green.

This top matches our hand painted skirt, which can be found here.

We hand make each blouse in our workshop in Nottingham, England. Each item is made-to-order, minimising fabric wastage.

SUSTAINABLE

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.

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

WASH CARE

Hand washing is best for this piece, but it can be machine washed 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 at cooler temperatures;
-wash your clothes less often;
-and don’t tumble dry.
