Soft, wave-like ripples reminiscent of Thailand’s southern beaches grace this crinkled cotton top which flows and flatters. Just like the solid-color version, this top is as easy to wear as your favorite T-shirt, but with an asymmetrical pocket, understated stripes, and a drapey cut to give it contemporary flair. Lightweight and easy to layer, it will be a year-round go-to. The fitted shoulder keeps the look relaxed but never sloppy. Handmade in a small workshop in northern Thailand.
To freshen up the texture, you can twist the top up when it comes out of the washing machine and let it dry that way (something you may remember doing with broomstick skirts in the 1970s, or 1990s, or today).
We recommend washing dark colors separately and drying on low heat or out of direct sunlight to minimize shrinkage and keep the colors true.
The Crinkle Cotton Striped Trapeze Tee exceeded my expectations. The cotton fabric is soft but sturdy,the stripe is casually ornamental, the fit is flattering. Enjoy.
It arrived smelly - a heavy perfume or flowery dryer cloth, and it was wrinkled, i.e, more than crinkle. I loved the material and the design but only after washing it and hung to dry. But it still smells - not so much now. Perhaps after I wash it again. Hope so.
