SHADOWY MAIS JACKET

A panama weave cotton fabric developed by Osti that, like 50 Fili, was constructed specifically to create special effects during garment dyeing. In this case the weft of the fabric was woven with a light “corn husk” green coloured yarn whilst the warp was white or uncoloured. When garment dyed, a subtle two-tone effect was created. Often this effect was accentuated by emery brushing the outer side of the fabric and/or adding a resin (fissato) to the garment dye bath to create an un- even absorption of colour.
