Our Bias Cut shirts are our take on a simple scoop neck blouse. Bias cut means the cloth is cut on the 45 degree diagonal. This technique allows for vertical and horizontal stretch of the garment, as opposed to the solid state of shirts cut straight on the grain. This shirt forms to your body, while still having enough structure to glide gently over you without being clingy. 100% handwoven cotton means its soft, breathable, and moisture wicking.
We shrink the cloth after weaving, and before sewing, so that all garments are machine wash and dry-able, and won't shrink when you wash them yourselves. We use rolled hems and flat-felled seams to ensure the quality of our clothes. These garments stand the test of time and wear, lasting our customers ten years or more of hearty wear.
The Barnswallow motif is inspired by the blue and rust color bird that it is named after. The blue warp section of the cloth is dyed with indigo, a plant based dye that becomes a lighter wash over time (like denim).

Barnswallow | Bias Cut Shirt
Our fabrics are woven from 100% cotton and are washed after weaving in hot water and dried in hot dryers to minimize the shrinkage of the finished product. All seams are flat felled for durability and comfort.
Machine wash warm and use moderate dryer settings, or hang to dry to maximize the garment's lifespan.
