Bare Shoulder Tunic in Ómbre Rose
The Bare Shoulder Tunic is a simple tunic that hits mid thigh, with a sweet detail on the shoulder that lets your skin shine through. The rose color fades into natural cotton with a subtle ombre transition. This flirty number is cute worn as a dress, or over shorts or pants.
The Bare Shoulder Tunic is made from cotton is woven on a loom in Mitla, Oaxaca, Mexico, cut and sewn, and then each piece is individually hand dyed using all natural dye. The dusty rose color is achieved from the bark of mangrove trees.
We recommend machine washing your piece in cold water, with like colors, and then hanging to dry. This will extend the life and preserve the vibrancy of the color of your item. As this piece is 100% cotton, it will shrink slightly in the dryer. If you WANT your piece to shrink up, placing it in the dryer once should do the trick, without harming it.
While the dyes are generally colorfast, as in they won't be washed out, they are somewhat volatile, living elements, and so sweat and certain foods could slightly alter the color. If so, simply wash the piece with a neutral soap or baking soda, to restore the PH and remove the "stain."
Due to the nature of plant dye, each piece will have slight variations. These are not considered a defect, but rather speak to the handmade nature of each piece, which renders in completely unique from the next.
