Slim Ease Oversized Shirt in Undyed Colorganic® Cotton
Oversized unisex fit/antifit with extended length and cropped, folded sleeves for a playful yet elegant silhouette with beautiful drape on the shoulders. Wear as a tunic over pants, or as a short dress on its own.
Made from a crisp, limited-run 6.5-oz colorgrown chambray, ringspun and woven in Japan, with incredible natural variations that include accents of rich brown. Sits cool against the skin, but with a tight weave for good insulation when layering.
Naturally colored cottons are heirloom varieties of cotton with roots tracing back thousands of years, that contain brown, green, or reddish pigments within their own fibers. These breeds exhibit not only uniquely beautiful undyed hues, but also offer greater resistance to UV radiation, bacterial growth, mildew, and water due their substantially higher concentrations of tannins and protective waxes in comparison to white cotton. Naturally colored cottons are more drought tolerant and pest resistant, making them easier to grow organically.
