Material & Care
This piece is carefully handwoven from small scraps of fabric as part of tonlé’s unique, zero waste process – utilizing a combination of carefully hand-cut fabric yarns made from cutting room scraps. Tonlé’s custom-designed fabrics are carefully hand-woven in partnership with talented weavers in Cambodia’s Preah Vihear province in a fair trade workshop, and sent back to their Phnom Penh workshop for final sewing. They burn test each fabric to assure that it is at least 90% natural, plant-based fiber.
Please carefully hand-wash and lay flat to dry for best results. Because of the carefully handmade nature of this piece, it is as eco friendly as it is uniquely stylish. Each piece may vary slightly in color and texture, and we celebrate this.
