Aspen Shibori Top
Aspen Shibori Top
The aspen tree embodies courage. She confidently expresses herself as she stands in her own power. She turns heads, for she dances when she walks. She is luminous, yet quiet: she invites us to listen to the light within ourselves, and to relish the silence around us. The aspen tree reminds us we are all connected, unified by deep, interwoven roots.
Clean and modern, the Aspen top embodies elegance. The left arm has a lowered armhole, while the right side cascades without being overwhelming. The Aspen features front/back neck facing, baby hems, and minimal seams. This exceptionally flattering top is designed for movement, like shimmering aspen leaves in autumn. Designed and hand dyed in reverse shibori technique in my Denver studio.
Wear with leggings, jeans, or wide leg trousers. To layer on cooler days, wear a warm long sleeve top underneath.
CONTENT + CARE
Tencel (lyocell) is an ultra-soft, breathable fabric that feels like sueded silk. It has a fluid drape and is one of the best options for people with sensitive skin and those who are concerned with their "bumps and lumps" showing in drapey fabrics. It is made from the pulp of eucalyptus trees and is one of the most environmentally-friendly fibers out there: with a closed-loop manufacturing process, 99% of the wastewater is reused instead of wasted.
Many brands often use the terms lyocell and Tencel interchangeably, but it’s not quite accurate unless the brand has exclusive branding rights from Lenzing®, the company manufactures Tencel®, which is the brand name for the fiber lyocell. Like tissue is to Kleenex®, lyocell is to Tencel®.
Care: hand or machine wash cold delicate cycle with similar colors, gentle detergent, no bleach or fabric softener, air dry. Tencel® feels stiff when it's air dried (because it's wood pulp), but not to worry: once it's fully dry, you can tumble in the dryer on air dry only for a few minutes and it'll be super soft. If you use an iron, set it to cool and use a press cloth-- direct pressure can damage the fibers.
The Aspen is designed to fit sizes 0-24 (O-3X), accommodating a wide range of body types and sizes. The body is always in transition.
