Metta Sailor Boxy Top - French Ticking Stripe

$250.00 AUD

The Sailor Top is a simple boxy silhouette with a straight neckline, triangle shoulder detail, and split details in the side seam and sleeve. Year after year, the Sailor top has been our best-selling style regardless of the season. Combining style and uber wearability, the oversized cut in this limited edition opaque French Ticking Stripe allows The Sailor Top to be worn with nothing underneath in summer, or layered over warmer layers when needed.

Ticking Stripe was originally known as ‘ticking fabric’ and made from thickly woven cotton or linen. ‘Ticking’ comes from the Greek word ‘theka’, which means ‘case’ or ‘covering’ as this delightful fabric was used in the home to cover mattresses, keeping straw and feathers in nicely. We fell in love with this timeless stripe many years ago, and love to incorporate it into our collections.
