Handwoven Makara Sweater - Sand
This sustainable fashion sweater is handwoven from scraps of reclaimed jersey in tonlé's unique zero waste process, and features slightly cropped sleeves and a roomy cut that makes it an ideal layer over dresses or favorite shirts. Each sweater will have slight variations in texture due to the handmade nature of the textile.
Care Instructions: 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. Their 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. tonlé burn tests 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.
tonlé is a maker-led community that values inclusivity, honesty, and reciprocity. Their business is more than the garments they make.

Through a sustainable zero waste process, they create clothing, accessories and homewares from reclaimed materials that other manufacturers consider waste. And they strive for circularity and climate justice to mitigate the fashion industry’s devastating impact on the planet.
