The Artist Vest: Corte 1

The oversized pockets and easy-to-wear look go with everything from tank tops to long sleeves makes this vest ideal work working in the studio, running errands around town, or just feeling cozy at home. 

This is a one-of-a-kind variety we made with pre-loved traditional cortes (wrap skirts). We love the flash of red from the inner lining and the asymmetrical alignment of the randa embroidery on the back of the vest.

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

Shoulder Width: 12 inches

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
