The Artist Vest: Bougainvillea
The oversized pockets and easy-to-wear look go with everything from tank tops to long sleeves, making this vest ideal work working in the studio, running errands around town, or just feeling cozy at home.
All textiles used for our vests and jackets are handwoven using naturally-dyed cotton yarn (in this case, with cochineal) at Lake Atitlán by our partner weavers. The ikat patterns are carefully made by placing dye-resist knots in the warp before setting up the pedal loom.
The construction of the garment is done by Juan Carlos, who was able to purchase an overlock sewing machine in 2020 with all the work from making cloth masks since COVID hit. We are so pleased with this new addition to our collaborative offerings.
Including a mending kit with each vest in-line with this piece's Japanese influence! With a few different textile squares (including the same textile as the vest) and naturally-dyed cotton threads, we hope for these garments to be loved and used for years to come as well as mended if needed in the future. When done with care and love, we believe that mending makes garments increasingly beautiful.
Length: 29 inches
Width : 12.5 inches.
Care: hand-wash separately and line dry.
Currently available in one size due to flexible nature of the vest worn open - we think it is a good fit for US sizes S/M
