1990's silk blouse dyed with avocado pits and hand-painted and revived using Cutch. Cutch is a plant dye made from the wood of the Acacia Catechu tree. It is both a dyestuff and tanning agent and has been used in India since ancient times. The organic avocado pits are collected overtime as avocados are a favorite in our house. The pre-loved blouse is constructed of a super soft, drapey and washable silk. Revived in our San Francisco Studio. One-of-a-kind.
