The color green is Taurus' color. Taurus is the most loyal, practical, and down to earth sign in the Zodiac. (My husband is one, lucky me!) I wear green when I want to remember that I belong to the Earth. It is so easy to be disillusioned with life when we disconnect from Mother Nature. When we get outside, breathe her fresh air, walk barefoot, hug a tree, we are reminded that everything we need is given to us already. There is nothing else. Channel the Taurus goddess within, and watch the growth unfold effortlessly once it's unhindered! Our soul's journey has always been to reconnect with The One, The Infinite, The Goddess/God, The Divine Energy that unites us all. I bow to you, sister in the light.

 

  • INGREDIENTS: 92% forest fiber from acacia, eucalyptus, poplar, pine, spruce, beech, birch, and maple trees grown on tree farms in Eastern Europe, 8% spandex for stretch. 
  • FIT: A super cropped shrunken vintage shirt fit. Size up if you want a looser fit. Fits loosely and boxy, hits just below the bust, and a slightly short arm length. Pairs so beautifully with our bra top underneath and our high waisted bottoms!
  • WE CARE DEEPLY: Dyed by hand shades of avocado and botanical green. White moon inside a yellow sun printed with water based ink on front. The white moon symbolizes you, the sun symbolizes The Source holding you. Cut, sewn, dyed, and printed in downtown Los Angeles by small family owned shops where creators are paid more than minimum wage. *Please note: Our pieces are dyed by hand, and vary from piece to piece. The tops and bottoms were dyed in separate batches and may not be identical in coloring. This is a sign of a handmade item, and makes your pieces special. We are not a mass produced brand.*

Q - Why is it so expensive?

A - Clothes can only be made cheaply if people and/or the planet are being exploited. In 2022, the reality is we are extracting limited resources from the planet to make limitless things. The more plastic clothing made in slave like conditions overseas we support with our hard earned dollars, the more we tell brands that YES, we are down with limitless consumption. When we pay workers a living wage and consider that the planet cannot survive at the pace we are overproducing, clothing can't be inexpensive. We need so much less than we're told we need, therefore do not need to buy dozens of $6 items. It's always better to save up for ethical pieces. (This message is to those with some disposable income, not to those living in poverty.)

We pay a premium for high quality fabrics and labor. While an average top may cost $2.50 for Shein to make, we pay anywhere from $30-$50. That means on a $78 dollar top, profit may be $30-40, which must cover operating expenses (website fees, shipping, advertising, freight charges), taxes, and payroll to our fairly paid employees. Our end of the day profit is closer to $3-6. If we did this for the money, we'd be in the wrong industry. We do this to make an amazing heirloom piece you'll treasure for years.


Q - When are sold out items restocked?

A - We don't make the same thing twice, and this is why: our creations are art! An artist would not repaint the same piece over and over. And for you, our beloved customer, this means your piece is very unique and bespoke. No one else will have it. This is how we used to make clothes long ago-- items just for you that are meant for you and not mass produced to maximize profits.

Q - Where is it made and who makes it?

A - We only work with small family owned shops employing 8-10 people paying well above minimum wage in Los Angeles, CA.


Q - Is it sustainable and organic?

A - Anyone who claims true sustainability while producing a product is greenwashing, intentional or not. We are responsible. To be truly sustainable we should all be wearing undyed, unisex, 100% recycled fabric scraps, government issued uniforms for 5-10 years at a time. While we are not that, we are much, much better than most of the alternatives out there. Our fabric is 99% closed loop, low plastic, made with fair wages, GOTS certified dyed, water based inked, made in the USA, and we donate money to a new charity every month. We will never stop seeking more ways to be make a cleaner and more beautiful piece of clothing!

Q - Why is it so expensive?

A - Things can only be made cheaply when either someone is underpaid or it's completely automated. Unfortunately, machines haven't taken over all labor yet. So in the meantime we pay a premium for high quality fabrics and labor. While an average top may cost $5 for Forever 21 to make, we pay anywhere from $30-$50. That means on a $68 dollar top, profit may be $30-40 which then must cover operating expenses (website fees, shipping containers, freight charges), taxes, and payroll. Our end of the day profit is closer to $3-6. If we did this for the money, we'd be in the wrong industry. We do this to make an amazing garment you'll love for years.


Q - When are sold out items restocked?

A - Never. Nothing gold can stay. Each piece is specially designed for the vibe and spirit of the season. Once it's gone, it's gone!

Q - Where is it made and who makes it?

Love this shirt dearly! The earthy green color is grounding and calming. I feel very confident and authentic wearing this shirt, as goes for all my purusha people clothing. I sized up for boxier fit and longer sleeves. Thank you Hayley!

The most gorgeous green

As I do with everything from Purusha, I fell in love with this instantly. Comfortable as always and the colour makes my heart so happy. The crop style and design is also lovely and one of my preferred lengths of tops. I'm also a Taurus so I feel like this was just meant to be on my body :D Thank you xo

The shirt I didn't know I needed

Received this top in one of the mystery seconds bundles - it's something I probably wouldn't have picked out for myself, but boy am I glad it came! Colors & print are beautiful (as usual), and it's so soft and cozy - the fit (as described) is cropped with shorter sleeves. I usually wear a medium in purusha tops/bra tops (for reference, 32DD in traditional bras) - would probably size up to a large for this style it I were to order again, but only because I like tops like this a bit baggier.
