The hand-painted Mehetia pareo by Carole Tahiti is part of the exclusive collection of 5 unique pieces edited for Somewhere A Process. Made in the Paopao district, in the Windward Islands in French Polynesia, the Tiare flower, palm trees, beaches and nature in general are at the heart of this colorful summer collection. In cotton veil, this light sarong is perfect for high temperatures and to perfect a pretty swimsuit. The painting method resembles the setting method. The white cotton veil fabric is stretched over a frame, the patterns are then drawn with gutta, which is a kind of wax or glue. The dye is then applied with a foam brush, the gutta acting as a barrier to the different colors applied. The sarong is placed in the sun for quick drying which will fix the colors. Once dry, the pareo is ironed to permanently fix the color. A product developed with responsible consumption in mind and made to accompany you for several years during your getaways. Can also be worn as an XL scarf or transformed into a tablecloth for colorful picnics or pretty garden tables.
