The Agnes Tunic | Indigo Ikat

198.00

The everyday Agnes Tunic: 100% natural cotton, handwoven on a traditional standing loom in the Oaxaca Valley by the lovely Mendez family. Naturally dyed indigo threads are woven into the most subtle ikat pattern–a perfect complement for days near the sea or cool pool of water during the spring and summer months. A simple silhouette designed for ease of movement and comfort. For everyday, a celebration of beauty in comfort and handmade artistry.

The Agnes Tunic is completely handmade from start to finish, down to washing and dyeing the cotton thread used to weave the intricate ikat design. This laborious, multi-step process requires amazing attention to detail, and significant time. Setting up the hand-operated standing loom in order to begin weaving takes an entire day. The Mendez family is a multigenerational master weaving family in the Oaxaca Valley. Their impressive history dates back to 1920, with multiple acknowledgments of exemplary status in Mexico and internationally. Read about their family business on the AE journal here. Worn with the August Palm Woven Hat.

Care/note: measures 33x33 inches with 9 inch neck and sleeve openings. Due to the handmade nature of this piece, slight variations in measurements may occur. Dry cleaning is recommended, or hand wash in cold water with a mild detergent, lay flat to dry. A warm iron will take out any creases.

WOVEN is the AUGUST ETTA commitment to weaving a social tapestry across borders through conscious consumerism. 5% of all AUGUST ETTA profits go directly to Fundación En Vía in support of women in Oaxaca, Mexico where many offerings and commissions for AUGUST ETTA are handmade.
