LAKE SKY | naturally-dyed crop tunic | cochineal and organic indigo soy wax batik

88.00

Hand-dyed, drafted and sewn women's crop tunic. Inspired by the many lakes I grew up around in Minnesota, especially White Bear Lake at dusk. Dyed naturally with cochineal and organic indigo soy wax batik. It takes time to extract the color from cochineal: by soaking, simmering, straining and then repeating over several days and weeks to extract the most color. I use an organic fructose indigo vat that is completely chemical free. The cochineal is from a 5 family farm in Peru.

Linen/cotton/bamboo blend. Tissue weight linen. 


Dimension when laying flat:
width: 24 1/2 inches
length: 15 1/2 inches in front, 17 1/2 inches in back
