This shirt is knit on a knitting machine and then hand sewn together. It features a notched, open side. I like to call it the mullet of shirts--business in the front, party on the side. This cut is super flattering and ideal for a night out or a casual daytime outing. Throw a sweater on and no one will even know it has a fun side.
Please allow for small variations in color and pattern because the beauty of natural dyes is in their inconsistency.

About the materials:
The madder plant is native to the eastern Mediterranean region and Central and Southern Asia. A piece of madder root dyed cotton was discovered at the Mohenjo-daro archeological site in India which dates back to 2500 BCE. The dye is usually cultivated from the plant’s roots which must grow for two years until they are able to be used.
When dyeing with this plant you first must treat the fabric overnight while soaking the root. You then boil the root with the cloth for about 2 hrs. This process is labor-intensive and time consuming but yields a beautiful salmon-y, coral color.
