hand-dyed rosewood lotus dress - open closet reimagined - x-large
Our Open Closet Reimagined Collection engages makers from our community to take garments with perceived imperfections and use them as a springboard for their imagination- resulting in fresh, one-of-a-kind pieces for a wardrobe that's uniquely you. For our first round of Reimagined pieces, makers from the tonlé team worked with dye, paint, and bleach resist to upcycle each piece into a new work of art.
This dress has been tie and dyed using a bleach resist to create a one-of-a-kind piece. An ideal blend of style and comfort, this tulip shaped wrap dress can be adjusted to give you a perfect fit. The ruched waist has a wrap around tie closure. Made from cotton jersey fabric, this dress is as easy to wear as your favorite t-shirt. Pair it with flats for a simple daytime look, swap them out for heels or booties in the evening. As part of our unique zero waste process, this dress is made from reclaimed jersey.
This reimagined pre-owned dress is available through open closet, our circular fashion resale platform.
This piece is made from cotton jersey remnants (t-shirt offcuts) – and may include a blend of other natural plant-based fibers and some elastic. We burn test each fabric to assure that it is at least 90% natural, plant-based fiber. To best take care of your zero waste upcycled garment (and to be as earth-friendly as possible), we recommend machine washing in cold water, and hanging to dry. This garment can be ironed on low heat on the back side of the print, but we really don’t think that’s necessary! Our t-shirt fabrics are carefully hand selected each week from remnant markets where large manufacturers bring discarded off-cuts and deadstock, and we do our best to select the most consistent, comfortable, soft, and high-quality fabrics. Fabrics are pre-washed and shrunk, but if you machine dry this garment it may shrink slightly.
