This fair trade retro inspired shirt is handmade in Ghana from 100% cotton and is a perfect display of the unique personality of Global Mamas batik work. It is olive green with a white, abstract sun-ray print. The body is fitted and many of our lovely customers have commented on the "tailored fit" of these tops. The cap sleeves are ideal for warmer weather, a very complimentary nearly-sleeveless look for the arms and shoulders, pair with a cardigan to wear all year long. Buttons trail up to a band collar and a modest V-neck. The fabric is hand sewn and hand batiked, and includes a card with the signatures of the seamstress and batiker. See size chart.
Because it is a handmade product, patterns and colors may vary slightly. Wash before your first use, and avoid using bleach. Hand wash or machine wash on gentle cycle in cold water with like colors and air dry. Do not dry in direct sunlight.
