Arnate Dropped 3/4 Sleeve Printed Organza Silk Top
Floating in the air, like the orchid’s roots, we entangle ourselves in complex networks of growth composed of both past and present. Drawing in strength from mist and air. Culturing ourselves out of our environment.
For 2023, we found inspiration from the orchid’s roots in our studio garden. As we tender to our garden, the orchid plant is uprooted and displaced onto broken ceramics, where over time, its roots begin to grow and entangle itself around the object, making a new place, a new belonging. For our families who were uprooted as refugees, and by circumstance became part of the Vietnamese diaspora around the world, they too found themselves uprooted, and rooted again in new places, with a new sense of home, belonging and interconnectedness. Our orchid root print is of roots that will entangle upon one’s body. We will continue to nurture, water, and tend to our roots, as we ever so growing and evolving.

We recommend dry cleaning at-home or at a shop to keep the crisp of the silk organza. To soften the silk organza, machine wash cold on delicate, with no other hooks/clasps that could snag on the handcrafted blind hem stitch, and tumble dry low (if you don't tumble dry low, it will be very wrinkly).
The digital printing on the silk organza is using eco-friendly inks and "Stamp it Safe" system: (1) Formaldehyde-free* system (2) Products used in compliance with ZDHC, GOTS and bluesign® (3) Safe to use, safe to wear, safe to release.
