Inga Cropped Jacket with Naturally Dyed New & Vintage Cottons XL/2X #EOP10


The Inga Cropped Jacket with Naturally Dyed fabric is your grab & go for a stylish Fall look.  Inga was created using your favourite features of the Vivianne jacket and adding extra details you will love.  

This jacket is elegantly crafted piece in collaboration with the natural dyers at East of Pine.
This exclusive jacket features new gorgeous woven fabric paired with fused vintage cotton sleeves.  
This jacket features many dyeing techniques including logwood and Lac, as well as indigo, rust, tea staining & onion skins
Rust is found in junk piles, abandoned scraps at the side of the road and near our water shores. Printing with it involves a scientific process of oxidizing metal, which creates a lasting orange print on fabric. When mixed with other colours or tannins, it can result in deep browns, greys and blacks. This is one of East of Pines most unique and technical processes.

Indigo is a very unique and historical colour, creating a beautiful blue using great attention to detail, patience and care. Indigo requires a perfect balance of ph levels, sugars and dye substances

Lac is another dye derived from insect resin, a wonderful sticky material that creates a rich magenta/red/purple hue.
Onion skin dyeing is gathered from Emily and Polly's at East of Pines' homes or found in abundance in the form of scraps in grocery stores. Red and yellow onion skins create varying shades of greens and yellows.

The process includes scouring the fabric, followed by the addition of a tannin, and finally, it gets mordanted. This three-step pre-treatment ensures that the natural dye will hold onto the fabric and that we will achieve the most vibrant colours from the dyed materials. Once the fabric is treated, the onion skins are added in a process called eco-bundle dyeing, which involves scrunching and then steaming the fabric with the onion skins inside. Once the dyeing is complete, fabric is rinsed and hung to dry.

Delicately stylish and sustainable, this jacket is a timeless addition to any wardrobe.

Fringed pockets, a faced neck and front edge, with bias tape finishing and Italian made pewter button down detailing make this jacket extra special.  Separate collar and signature DCD sleeve.
