This cap-sleeved top is cropped to waist and subtly shaped with pintucks. It features a two-color offset print designed by artist Paula J. Wilson, and hand screen printed in Chicago by artist Nora Renick-Reinhart. The hem and sleeves of the top are left raw. The top is lined with 100% bemberg rayon lining, and has a brass zipper closure.

 

The leather used in this top is sourced from Horween, a union­ized tannery located one mile from Produc­tion Mode’s Chicago studio. Vegetable tanning is a slow, non-toxic process which uses tree bark to cure the leather and which produces hides with rich, warm, and uniquely varie­gated tones that improve as they age. In addi­tion, vegetable tanned leather can be more easily and safely recy­cled than chrome tanned leather (the most commonly used and often quite toxic method of process­ing leather).

This top is sewn at Produc­tion Mode’s Chicago studio by an arti­san hired through Loom, a social enter­prise of Catholic Char­i­ties Refugee Reset­tle­ment Program.  Produc­tion Mode pays a living wage to all work­ers in our supply chain.

Vegetable tanned leather retains the grain patterns, marks, and scars picked up by the animal during its life­time; each top reflects these vari­a­tions of the hide.

Made in the USA
