The Pleated Canvas Bolero is a bespoke design that is one of the most time intensive pieces we have ever developed. Included with each purchase is a virtual or in-person fitting with a complimentary sample garment to ensure the perfect fit, as well as free worldwide shipping. Each is made to order, taking approximately two weeks.
Each bolero is made from reclaimed, 100% cotton canvas, is fully lined, and sewn by hand in New York City. Our studio model, Morgan, is 5' 7" tall and wears a size small.
The canvas that is used in this design we saved from ending its life in the trash. While driving in New York City, we saw an office closing. All of its perfectly good furniture, supplies, and extra fabrics were being bagged up, and ready for the landfill. We fortunately drove by at the perfect time to save most of what we could, including this painters tarp and drop cloth.
With the canvas being so stiff, we wanted this design to best use that quality, and take inspiration from its original life and intention.
The heavily textured pleating gave this natural colored canvas a beautiful new life.
