The Naturally Dyed Organic Cotton Muscle Tee

$145.00

Details
The Organic Cotton Muscle Tee you know and love, dialed up and dialed down.

Dialed up: Our naturally dyed tees are a unique beauty. Each tee is lovingly hand-dyed in New Orleans by our friend Eliza Wapner of lil bits cloth. Since each tee is hand dyed, please note that there will be slight variations in both the tee's color and pattern. This is what makes each tee so special.

Dialed down: Truly #slowfashion. The naturally dyed tee is hand-dyed using either avocado waste (aka pits and skins) to achieve a pinkish color or indigo to achieve a deep blue color. Super chill and au naturel. 

More Scoop from Genevieve, Founder at Underbares
"Our first-ever limited edition artist collaboration with Eliza is a dream realized. The beautiful salmon-sunset-pink of the avocado dyed tee combined with the deep blue ocean hues of the indigo dyed tee are reminiscent of my childhood growing up in a small beach town in Massachusetts. Collaborating with Eliza to create tees that are lovingly and naturally dyed to represent my favorite place, the beach, feels both nostalgic and extra special. We hope you treasure your tee for years to come. Sending love and gratitude to you and Eliza." -Genevieve

Eliza’s Notes on the Dye Process
“I am humbled to practice the natural dye process. For the indigo dyed tees, I used a resist technique that involves folding the tees and clamping wood on top of them. I then dipped each tee into the indigo vat three times. For the avocado dyed tees, I boil avocados and let them sit for a few nights. This allows the avocado color to deepen within the liquid. I then use a shibori tying technique to fold and tie the shirts. This technique creates a sprawling circular pattern on the tees. The tees then get boiled in the avocado dye liquid and pick up the pinkish color. Each tee is then carefully washed and processed to enhance the color. I approach each step with great care, and I hope you love your tee.” -Eliza
