100% cotton sleeveless top, hand-knit by female artisans in Southern India. The cotton yarns are mercerized, meaning they're stronger than regular cotton and have a luxurious sheen.
Features orange and ivory waved colour-blocking on the front and back. The Gila borrows its name from the Gila Monster, a lizard native to the American Southwest, which has a unique orange pattern found on its back.
This product was lovingly knit with human hands - on average it took 17 hours to knit each top. Each piece is slightly unique to the other, lending a warmth that cannot be replicated with machine knitting.
Hand-knit by the all-female collective KOCO in Tamil Nadu, India. KOCO aims to promote gender equality and financial independence for women and their families. They offer not only full-time employment for women, but also education in English and mathematics.
KOCO is B Corp certified demonstrating their commitment to high social and environmental standards. They were also a finalist in the 2020 Outstanding Leadership Awards and a 2019 honouree for B Corp's 'Best for the World Businesses' Community category.
Please note the cotton used is conventional. We plan to move to organic yarns for future collections.
