Tank Tie Top | Container Key Print
Our Tank Tie Top has fast become a summer classic, and staple in any wardrobe, as it can be layered easily over a plain white tee, or create that perfect apron effect over a more flowy blouse. An easy-fit tank top that fastens with double ties on either side in order to wear it in Summer on its own or with a bralette. The perfect trans-seasonal piece to add a pop of colour and sustainability to your outfit. There is even the option to wear it inside out for a fun and different contrast print!
This time our Tank Tie Top comes in our ‘We Are Freo’ Collection Rainbow Container Key Print, designed by local artist Sabine Figaro. This design wears well with other bold colours layered underneath or on the bottom half of your outfit, as the hand stitching of the rainbow shipping containers allows for an almost endless pairing potential! This design would also be just as playful styled casual with a pair of denim jeans and white sneakers.
Sabine Figaro is a local, self-taught watercolour artist known for her bright, happy sketches of native Australian Flora and fauna. Sabine has such a vibrant, unique style, and with a background in microbiology, it is easy to see why Australian wildlife and the ocean are a constant inspiration in her work. Her Rainbow Container Key Design is a combination of two iconic symbols in Fremantle – the Rainbow shipping container sculpture on Canning Highway that overlooks the port, and the Round House prison which is one of Fremantle’s original buildings.
Together, these symbols come together to form a key design, which represents the unlocking of one’s potential in a city that is full of creativity, adventure and possibilities. The two symbols also represent a sort of feeling of home for Sabine, as her home overlooks both the Shipping Container sculpture and the old Fremantle Prison.
As always, our garments are designed in Fremantle, Western Australia. Made ethically from 100% hand-loomed Khadi Cotton in Pushkar, India by The Stitching Project. Designs are hand carved onto wooden blocks. Then Pawan, our block printer at The Stitching Project places each block onto the ink board. This process is repeated a hundred times over with amazing precision and experience to create the perfect patterns. All of our dyes are Global Organic Textile Standards (G.O.T.S) Certified, and our fabric and processes are Craftmark Certified. Each of our Garments is proudly signed by every craftsperson who has had a hand in making it.
