2018 MALACHITE Lagoon Talisman Bralette
"There is comfort in keeping what is sacred inside, not as a secret, but as a prayer."
(Terry Tempest Williams)
At long last: we are bringing back the Talisman Bralettes, this time made-to-order so that they're just your size. Featuring hidden inside pockets, sewn along each side of bust. Use these pockets to keep love notes to yourself, prayers, small stones, or a lock of hair from your loved one. Adjustable stretch straps, and adjustable band at waist with hook closure. Wide Straps by request if you would like extra support :) These bralettes are one of our most complex pieces, constructed with lots of care and attention to detail. At the magic undies workshop, these are our current favorite item :) We are starting with a very small batch because they take time.
Layered plant dyes mingle to create gorgeous multi-dimensional color in shades of blue-green-gold; like Malachite stone. This is the first time we have offered a true green since the very first collection back in 2014! It has been a long time coming and we are so excited to offer these magical emerald/moss/lagoon beauties. This color feels like something made for Fae people, or perhaps some mythical water-being, some nymph or naiad.... It is hard to capture the depth of color in photographs.
This Talisman Bralette are hand dyed in multiple layers of indigo, followed by mordant and naturalyellow Osage dye, creating a beautiful, multi-dimensional blue-green color. Constructed with beautiful and sturdy enclosed seams, and finished with a cotton rope tie. Made from thick and stretchy Organic cotton lycra knit cloth, grown and knit in the USA.

Botanically dyed pieces are recommended to wash by hand and hang to dry out of direct sunlight. We recommend drying your pieces under moonlight, or hanging them to dry in your washroom. Natural dyes may fade over time, or even shift in color due to differences in PH or minerals in your washwater. If you spill lemonade on your plant-dyed undies, you may be in for a surprising color-change moment! For best results, treat naturally-dyed garments with care by handwashing in a light, bleach-free detergent with cold or warm (not hot) water. Washing separately is recommended for the first wash as it is possible that color may bleed. Garments are pre-shrunk. Please do not bleach- it damages both color and fiber. Always rinse after swimming in salt or chlorine to preserve the cotton fiber and to keep your pieces looking lovely. Hang to dry under moonlight or indoors to prevent sun-fading.
