Pure zone

A cotton knitted brown jersey at the Village Green Market, is a mixture of a kitch slash bohemian piece. Its colours are a combination of a natural brown fleck and a pale cream. Its texture feels incredibly soft and has a fine look to it. It does not have thick layers but feels warm when you wear it, and has rag - like material which would make you assume it is heavy but it is not. Aesthetically it is simple, and smells like burning paper. It has been delicately sewn to perfection because of the attention to detail of its stitching, which has been hand-done giving it an authentic edge. It consists of organic cotton fabric which means whether you tumble dry it or not it will not shrink. Not an ordinary piece, but can also be worn inside out.
