Pastel T-Shirt Light Blue/Mid Blue Foliage Tie-Dye
The Arpenteur Pastel T-Shirt in Light Blue and Mid Blue Foliage Tie-Dye is made of a heavy cotton jersey custom developed for the brand and knitted in France. Its shape is wide and comfortable. The Pastel T-Shirt has been hand-dyed in pastel blue vegetable dye. The handcrafted tie-and-dye technique ensures each T-shirt features a unique colouration pattern.
This season's Pastel T-Shirt is one of many styles hand-dyed with pastel blue vegetable dye. The pastel blue pigment is derived from the leaves of Isatis Tinctoria, a plant which grows in the Southwest of France. This item was soaked by hand in several successive dye baths, which mainly consist of pastel blue pigments and warm water. This dyeing process requires a lot of time and precision to obtain its exceptional bright colors, which are impossible to achieve with synthetic dyes. It is an art only very few craftsmen still master.
Like all naturally hand-dyed items, variations from piece-to-piece are unavoidable, and while everything has been done to prevent it, some dye migration is possible.
