Sleeveless Top Vest

Color
Merlot Smokered
Inland Taupe
Size

Lovely! A natural fiber top that's so versatile. You can wear it as a sleeveless top or a vest combined with another top. Longer sides drape nicely, the front has gentle vertical pleats and five buttons. To make it really the perfect, the top has two in seam pockets! Nice and roomy but because ramie can be woven very thinly it does not add bulk to the body, it stays cool even in tropics and looks great. Two great colors.

100% ramie. Ramie is a plant of nettle family, grown mostly in Asia and is very sustainable - it can be harvested up to six times a year. It has been used to produce textile for thousands of years - it is very strong, a white fiber that looks a bit similar to linen. It has a beautiful silky luster and it can be woven loosely to provide wonderfully light garments. Perfect for warm weather.

Made in China *see the note from LA-based designer below.

Machine washable in cold water.
