Hawthorn Top in Black Grid

$ 355

SOLD OUT — We sold through our original run of Buttercup Gauze fabric only to find that our supplier is completely out of stock as well! If this news bums you out as much as it does us, you'll be happy to know that we plan on adding a lot more double gauze (perhaps even in a similar sunny yellow color) to the site this summer. Sign up for our email newsletter at the bottom of the page to be the first to know about it!

Story

The Hawthorn is our take on the traditional button-up shirt, endlessly versatile and eternally stylish. My goal with the Hawthorn was to create a comfortable-but-not-boxy button-up that looked equally good tucked in and untucked. The top has bust darts to create moderate shaping along with with a semi-generous ease in the bust and waist for comfort. The split hem (my favorite design element!) looks super cool hanging out but also makes for an easy tuck (or half-tuck) into a pair of pants or skirt. The sleeves look just as good rolled up as they do buttoned down, and the top's slightly longer-than-usual length that makes it oh-so-perfect for layering under sweaters and over leggings.

      Materials

      This top is made of handloom fabric woven by hand in India. Handloom was the way basically all fabric was made from the dawn of time until the invention of electricity and modern milling techniques; it requires a high level of skill and craftsmanship, using the same techniques that were used centuries ago. The handloom process uses zero electricity, and the industry employs many skilled workers in rural areas of India where other jobs are scarce, making handloom super sustainable in addition to being breathtakingly beautiful. (Read more about handloom on our blog here.)

      This particular fabric is made of 100% khadi (i.e., handspun) cotton. It's a soft, textured, midweight fabric, good for winter layering but breathable for warmer days. The fabric has a true black base with white threads forming the grid pattern; it pairs excellently with darker denim, jewel tones, and black.

      In addition to the fabric, this style uses 100% organic cotton thread, eight vintage mother-of-pearl buttons, and organic cotton labels.

       

      Fit

      Take a look at our Size Guide to find your size.

      The Hawthorn is most fitted in the bust, so use your bust measurement when determining your size. If your bust measurement falls in between sizes, or if you're just wanting a top with some extra room, I recommend sizing up.
