The art of craftsmanship, a minimalist-designed everyday cardigan made completely from plants - yarns are recycled cotton and colors are extracts from dye plants. So you can style more and wear more with fun, we split the length into two colors so you can chose to wear the black/blue colors on top one day, and reverse it with the earthy soil on top the following day. This one-of-a-kind piece was crocheted by 20-year old Balinese, Iluh, with a love story below.
We know your friends will be asking so get ready to tell the handcrafting story below.
100% recycled cotton yarns
100% plant dyed: Blues from extracts of strobilanthes cusia leaves. Browns from extracts of coconut husk and ketapang leaves.
A Love Story of Giving
In March 2021, we met our young crochet artisan, Iluh, 20 years old, who's so proud that she'd been crocheting with her mom since she was 7 years old. She's beyond excited for her creations to go global for the first time. What's inspiring about Iluh's passion is her simple 'why' - crocheting makes her happy, period. We applaud her courage to get her manager's permission to crochet in her free time at the small graphic design shop where she works since there's not much customers to attend to during the pandemic. How's that for 'do what you love and love what you do.'
