Description

The Evora top is part of our Vol. 3 “The awakening” series, here’s some data about it:

  • A classic V-neck top on the front, a graceful see-through detail on the back.
  • Hand-knitted in Nila’s loom, in Barranco (Peru), with Tangüis organic cotton.
    Tangüis cotton, this natural fiber grows in the Peruvian coastline. Due to its absortion qualities, it requires less water to produce and less dye to achieve color. A resistent type of eco-friendly cotton and a new addition to La Petite Mort.
  • Available in: navy and grey (easy colors to mix&match!)

Tangüis cotton is the new addition for this SS18 collection. Just like Pima, it is locally sourced in the Peruvian coastline. The difference comes to the touch, its fiber is less soft but stronger and more uniform than Pima. Its resistance makes it perfect for hand-woven and handknitted pieces. Furthermore, Tanguis requires less water for the plantation (conducts moisture very well) and due to its absortion qualities it also needs less dye to obtain color compared to other cotton qualities. Tanguis and Pima cotton are the two “specialties” of Peru.
Though we highly recommend hand wash, cold machine wash on soft cycle it’s practical and won’t hurt your garment. Be sure to put alike colors together, do not bleach, and line dry in shade. While ironing, use medium iron on reverse.
