The August Tunic


100% natural cotton, woven on a traditional standing loom in the taller of the lovely Mendez family. A simple silhouette designed for ease of movement and comfort. For everyday, a celebration of beauty in comfort and simplicity. Available in two, versatile colorways: black/natural and black/barro rojo.  

The August Tunic is completely handmade from start to finish, down to washing and dyeing the cotton thread used to weave the subtle lines. This laborious, multi-step process requires amazing attention to detail, and significant production time.

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

Care/note: measures 30x38 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.
