Hand-Painted Feather Batik Halter Crop TopRegular price $60.00
The hand painted feather on the front is created with three separate layers of wax and dye! Lovingly and intricately made, from our hands to yours.
We make these to order, so you can choose your background color & size. The wax creates a resist for the dye, resulting in beautiful crackles of color. Every single piece is batiked & dyed by hand, so they’ll appear a little differently. The basic design stays the same from shirt to shirt but tiny details vary.
Please note that since these are made to order, we will ship 1-2 weeks after receiving the order. Batiked designs take multiple days to complete.
These are SUPER stretchy! Wonderful for yoga, acro, pole, dance, etc. Slim fit designed for movement. Will not shift when you're inverted. 92% cotton, 8% stretch. Sewn with cotton thread. Made to fit pretty snugly! Choose a halter neck or a scoop neck.
They are created using the same professional fiber-reactive dyes we use for all of our garments. You can expect machine washable, dryer safe, fade-proof clothing for years to come!

ABOUT OUR DYES
Fiber reactive (“low impact”) dyes have a higher than average absorption rate (around 80% depending on the color). Less water is required in the rinsing process, and less dye runs off in the water. These dyes have a lower impact on the environment than other synthetic dyes.
Low-impact dyes do not contain heavy metals (like chrome, copper and zinc), and they don’t require toxic chemical mordants to fix them to the fiber. We use soda ash, a cousin of baking soda!
Colors on your screen will not represent a perfect match to each dye job. Hand dyed fabrics are created anew with each garment so colors are approximate. That’s the true beauty of hand dyed!
