This shibori collection is inspired by an artistic exploration of tie-dye—a study of the rotations of the planets, the phases of the moon, and the changing colors of sunlight we experience. A project with natural indigo dye and a combination of resist dye techniques- clamps and beads, stitching, and folding- eventually led to this tie-dye focused Summer into Fall capsule.

abacaxi continues to be dedicated to sustainable fashion. Each piece has been tied and dyed by hand, separately, in northern India. As usual, all pieces come in natural fibers, mostly silk or cotton, and are cut as to reduce as much wastage as possible. The Lala Overalls come inside a soft pouch made with the leftover tie-dye fabrics. 

Summer 2018 marks the re-launch of abacaxi, we will now offer new pieces every few months. Rather than following the outdated fashion calendar,  we make clothing you’ll want to keep with you throughout the seasons and likely for years to come. These are easy, comfy, bright and happy separates you can wear and layer throughout the year. Pieces to take with you on an island getaway, or wear during your urban everyday.

Nara Dip-Dye Turtleneck

For this piece we wanted to create a turtleneck that’s playful, wearable, and totally out-of-the-box. The Nara dip-dye has a periwinkle blue base, with stripes of burgundy, marigold, cream and tan, and extra long “churidaar” cuffs in a contrasting orange hue. Made with a comfy cotton/lycra knit fabric, it brings together the many colors in this hand-dyed capsule collection.

Pair it with any one of The Lala Overalls, or with the matching reversible bikini set, or your fave denim bottoms.
