Color: Multi color stripes with chili print

Sometimes the garment factories order too much fabric, or a design gets cancelled resulting in piles of leftover fabric.

By using this material to make new items such as the tea towels, we prevent beautiful material from going to waste while at the same time contributing to a more sustainable garment production.
