EVENING SKY | naturally-dyed tunic | cochineal & organic indigo soy wax batik

98.00

Hand-dyed, drafted and sewn women's tunic. Naturally dyed with cochineal and organic indigo (soy wax batik) and over-dyed with cochineal to acheive this lovely range of purples and magenta reminiscent of an evening sky. 

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: 21 1/2 inches
length in front: 31 inches
