Cotton spandex hand batiked jersey top - a rare find for Osei-Duro! Fitted turtleneck that's quite stretchy and cozy, and easy to wear on so many occasions. Osei-Duro garments are hand dyed and each piece is unique. Please note that print placement and hue may vary.
Caring for your hand crafted batik garment:
To wash, turn your garment inside out. Preferably hand wash or machine wash cold on a delicate cycle with similar colors. Use a very mild detergent.
Hang to dry. The dye will fade over time from exposure to direct sunlight.
Iron (inside out) on a low heat setting or steam to get rid of wrinkles.
Think twice before you wash - could you get another wear in before washing? Is it really time?
If in doubt, dry clean.
Osei-Duro was founded in 2011 by Maryanne Mathias and Molly Keogh, who are designers from Canada and the United States respectively. The company is based in Vancouver BC, and Accra. They currently produce textiles and garments in Ghana, applying hand techniques to simple contemporary designs.
We prioritize social responsibility and transparency in our projects, preferring to work collaboratively with a wide range of artisans, designers and fine artists. The sewing is done in small workshops in Ghana where they have direct relationships with the sewers and can ensure that their pay is well above the minimum wage.
