Gathered Blouse

Our Gathered Blouse is all about the details.  Elegant gathers throughout and covered buttons at the cuff make a statement, dressed up or down. For a fit closer to the body, we recommend sizing down.

Material:  This blouse is made out of tree pulp as an alternative to silk to avoid killing silk warms. 

Material Origin   -  The yarn company sources FSC-certified wood pulp from responsibly managed forests in Sweden, where it undergoes its first stage of processing. The processed pulp is then sent to Germany and extruded into filament yarn. The filament yarn is put on beams and spools in Poland and sent back to Germany.

Material Journey  - This yarn is woven into fabric in Como, Italy, and dyed and finished in Villaguardia. Once complete, the fabric is sent to the atelier in San Paolo for cutting and sewing of the blouse. After passing Another Tomorrow's quality control examination, the team scans its unique QR code to link it to its provenance data and consolidates its shipment for export. 

Manufacturing Details  -  This blouse was made in an atelier of 35 owned and operated by the female owner and her two daughters. The atelier specializes in pattern making and development and has participated in the entire life-cycle of this dress from design to production. The Another Tomorrow team have visited the facility to ensure that working conditions are safe and comfortable and that employees are paid at minimum a living wage.

Animal Welfare  -  The wood pulp for this blouse was sourced from responsibly managed forests in Sweden. For us, Sweden's local regulatory policies that ensure zero net deforestation and protection of critical ecosystems are as important as the FSC-certification the yarn carries. In addition, the mill adheres to European REACH chemical management standards and has agreed to our ZDHC-based restricted substances list.
