This snuggly cardigan sweater has a clever drawstring at the bottom, so you can style the slightly cropped piece as loose or as tight as you’d like. It closes with hand-carved coconut shell buttons and the cropped sleeves end just past the elbow.
Designed in collaboration with Christopher, aka The Plant Kween, this sweater is a gender-expansive style. These are Christopher’s style notes: “Buttoned sweaters with a drawstring are all the rave, dahling. Get into it! This fun sweater can be as flowy as you want it to be or can hug that bawdy in all the right ways!”
The pieces in the Plant Kween x tonlé collection were created out of a shared appreciation for radical self-love, healing, community care, and (of course) plants! The clothing combines Christopher’s visionary style with tonlé’s sustainable, zero waste process, as each piece is made from reclaimed materials.
tonlé is working to reject and disrupt gender binarism in the fashion industry. Because traditional size charts can often be quite binary - we invite you to consider the measurements included in their sizing chart when considering which items may fit you best.
Materials + Care
This piece is made from sweater-fleece offcuts, just like your favorite sweatshirt. These up-cycled textiles include a blend of plant-based natural fibers and synthetic fibers. To best take care of your zero-waste upcycled garment (and to reduce your environmental footprint), we recommend machine washing in cold water, and hanging to dry.
Fabrics are pre-washed and shrunk, but if you machine dry this garment it may shrink slightly.
