    Amina wears size S in the Sasa duster coat. This Shuka fabric has adorned the shoulders of the Masai tribe for generations. The beautiful colours of the Shuka allow the Masai to blend into the earth's surrounds. 

    Just north of Kenya’s capital in the community of Ruiru, vibrant colours signify bravery, strength, unity + energy. Our partners in Ruiru have been carefully hand weaving fabrics since 1979, what’s more they are truly partners of fashion that gives a crap. With a committed history of giving back through educational programs, clean water initiatives + infrastructure investments for the community of Ruiru. 

    The trimmings used to make this garment are sourced from local suppliers in Fitzroy.

    Made In Melbourne. 

    How to take care of your garment:

    Our shuka is an acrylic blend, meaning it has the softness of wool but some added durability and anti-shrinkage properties from the acrylic. Below are some tips to ensure you maximise longevity from your Collective Closets piece.

      • Gentle machine wash
      • Wash in lukewarm water
      • Do not bleach or soak
      • Do not tumble dry
      • Warm iron + Dry cleanable 

      If using a washing machine, wash in cold water on a wool or gentle cycle, using mild detergent or even wool-specific soap (we love the one from Soapclub). Hand washing is a failsafe option- here are some general instructions to help with the process. Because it's a wool blend it is okay to hang out to dry, but if you are concerned it is best to leave the garment to dry flat  out of direct sunlight. 

      Running a lint comb/brush over the area should clear off any pilling. Pilling is when tiny balls of fluff form in areas of fabric that experience more abrasion. Seasonal storage is also a great idea if you have a piece you know you won't be needing for a while.
