Trinaya Butterfly Sleeve Convertible Wrap Top, Blk/Wht/Natural
Trinaya is the glam update to our bestseller Trina, Viv, and Livia wrap tops. Elevated with Philippine 100% pina textile statement sleeves, you can tie the blouse at the back as a surplice wrap, at your neck as a cowl, in the front as cover-up, or worn loosely without ties as an overlay cardigan - converting it into different ways according to your needs. Great for traveling, pair it with our Marisa pants or use as an accent piece to add pizzazz to existing styles in your wardrobe.
Currently constructed in the Philippines with fusible or Pellon to flatten the sleeves and make them stand up, we opted to go the more traditional route and created our butterfly sleeves without fusibles as fashioned around the late 1800s before pellon was invented in the 1930s, since we are moving away from using synthetics as virgin materials in order to be more sustainable.
For more details on how Pina is made, check-out the last photo. The process is as follows: 1. Harvesting the pineapple leaves; 2. Scraping the leaves; 3. Extracting the fibers from the leaves; 4. Separating the fibers; 5. Drying the fibers; 6. Spinning the fibers; 7. Weaving the fibers; 8. Pina textile!*
This style is now available for pre-order. We have only enough handwoven pina fabric for a few tops since the textile is not mass-produced; best to pre-order yours today and please allow for 2-3 weeks delivery. Be the star at any event!
