THE ESSENCE

| In the corners of Mexico, ancient ways endure – there the link between earth and body is no more abstract than the tie between rain and river and stories are woven into textiles.

Relaxed fit womenswear crafted mindfully in Oaxaca using natural and organic fibers and artisanal textile techniques.

Pursuing a passion for culture and craftsmanship, Rebecca’s textiles embrace meticulous handwork coupled with classic and contemporary silhouettes. Using natural and organic fibres, minimum waste pattern-making, weaving, constructing and hand finishing – each piece is unique and a labour of love.

Based on a sustainable model of re-use, long-lasting pieces are crafted mindfully with minimal environmental impact and an ongoing search for greater levels of sustainability.

SIZE + FIT | One size fits most: made to move with you and to be adjusted as you feel – fitted or loose on your body as you desire to wear it. Everybody is different, and getting things to fit just right can be a challenge. Please get in touch if you have any queries regarding your size, or if you’d like to discuss adjustment options. I’d be happy to guide you – I want to make sure you have a garment you will love and want to cherish for a long time.

MADE TO LAST | These garments are constructed using French seams and topstitching at stress points and fabric is pre-washed so it won’t shrink when you wash it. Carefully created embracing high quality natural fibers, each piece is a celebration of raw beauty, quiet luxury and craftsmanship.

FIBER – 100% LINEN | Considered one of the most environmentally responsible fibers, linen is made using the entire flax plant and requires little energy or water to grow and process. Linen is also breathable, hypoallergenic and feels comfortable against your skin while keeping your body cool on warm days and warm on cool ones. Inherently strong and durable by nature, your linen garment will have the strength to stand up to years of daily wear. This lightweight linen has been sustainably produced at a mill that operates with fair living wages and is fully compliant with current REACH regulations. This linen can also be responsibly recycled and is biodegradable. Once your garment’s life is over it will safely return to the soil from which it came.

SUSTAINABLE LABELS | GARMENT LABELS – Screen printed by hand in Oaxaca on 100% Mexican grown + woven cotton. HANG TAGS – Printed on ecologically handmade cotton (pochote) paper by Taller Arte Papel Vista Hermosa (San Agustín Etla, Oaxaca) and are entirely recyclable.

CARE | Lengthen the life of your garment by airing out between wears and washing only when necessary. Cold gentle hand wash (or delicate machine wash with like colors) using cold water to reduce fading while using less energy. Hang garment to air dry, saving electricity, preventing fiber degradation and maintaining the integrity of your garment. Avoid drying in direct sunlight. If dry cleaning, use a certified environmentally aware dry cleaner who avoids the use of harmful chemicals like perchloroethylene ‘perc’. This natural fiber gets better with time – avoid using the iron for a natural, easy look.
