Stara Robe in Facade Navy
BRAND PARTNER: NOST
The Stara Robe is a kimono-inspired piece with soft draped shoulders and a contrasting lapel. It can be worn as a light duster coat when you’re out and about, or cinched at the waist for a loungey day indoors. Great for a resort holiday after swims at the beach, plus it’s breastfeeding friendly.
Inspired by geometric building facades, the Façade print is a love of all things architectural. Designed from scratch and block-printed on 100% organic cotton by artisans. All the colours used are eco-friendly and azo-free – gentle on the skin and kind to the planet.
We love the dusky navy tones of this piece, contrasted by geometric, fluid lines of rust red and cream. The lapel is block-printed in stripes – a striking accent that elongates the body. It comes with two pockets because we know how life sometimes calls for hands-free moments & convenient stashing. Available in two colour ways: Navy and Mist.
Fabrics & dyes NOST chooses raw fabrics that are produced and sourced sustainably, to reduce environmental impact in the farming and washing processes. They favour 100% organic cotton, handloom cotton, and deadstock fabric. The dyes used in their block-printing processes are either completely natural, made from plant bark, fruits, roots and iron crystals, or eco-friendly azo-free dyes which allow a wider variety of hues.
Production NOST designs each piece to be seasonless, refining the cut and details so they can be comfortably worn again and again.
NOST chooses to work with heritage craft artisan families and vulnerable communities in their making process, seeking to present their skills and talents to the world. They visit their makers a few times a year, partnering them to create beautiful, sustainable fabrics. This is done with 3 aims in mind:
1. Preserving craft heritage
2. Growing their Sewing For Impact (SFI) Community
3. Providing Safe & Fair Employment
