Parachute Top

$180

View Size Guide
  • Insider Notes

    • This Parachute Top by Nkwo showcases the label’s devotion to conscious craftsmanship—it’s been made in Abuja, Nigeria, by local artisans and hand-dyed using traditional techniques. Designed in a loose, bubble-like silhouette, it has an elegant funnel neck, wide batwing sleeves, and a twist-front detail for a flattering effect. Use the drawstring hem to adjust the shape and style it over tailored pants, to supercharge your workwear rotation, or with a pair of simple slides when off-duty. Bonus point: the button fastening will work equally well when worn back to front for ultimate versatility.

      - Button fastening at the back
      - Cotton
      - Created by local artisans using innovative waste-reduction practices, such as recycling and fabric manipulation
      - Made in Abuja, Nigeria, ships from Nigeria

Sustainable brand NKWO relaunched in 2012 in Nigeria, with a focus on the preservation of traditional craft while curbing the damaging effects of textile waste. Each ready-to-wear piece is crafted using traditional West African weaving, beading, hand-dyeing and embroidery. The designer created her own fabric—using a modern strip weaving technique—dubbed “Dakala.” This hand-loomed upcycled fabric has a distinctively rich feel and is featured in each collection.
