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 vintage cotton fabric with extraordinary cut lace detail.
This jacket features many dyeing techniques including cochineal and Lac, as well as onion skins
Cochineal, well-known for its vibrant pink dye colour, is an insect shell widely used for natural dyeing. 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.

Lace trimmed 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.  Scalloped details throughout
