The Flughafen was the first upcycled design that I put a Flux Bene label on, in 2017. It was originally intended for travel, so I named it after my favorite German word, which means airport.
This top has a cropped hem, large chest pockets, and cuffed short sleeves. It looks great with high-waisted pants & skirts, and is lovely layered over sleeveless tops and dresses. OR even long sleeved ones (Stay cozy, fellow chilly friends!)
This batch of 6 Flughafens features pockets and cuffs crafted in small pieces of fabric from past items that we have made. Each one is even more one-of-a-kind than usual.
This Flughafen is crafted in a soft pinstripe blue cotton. The contrast fabrics are cotton & linen, and a number of them were hand dyed in our studio. This one also has cute slanted original chest pockets peeking out over the pieced pockets.
This Flughafen features:
- OOAK pieced zero-waste chest pockets & cuffs
- Hand dyed indigo hem tape
- Our original hand printed tag
- Double-sided cuffed sleeves that can be worn folded or straight
We also offer a Flughafen sewing pattern, so that you can make your own! : Flug Sewing Pattern)
Flughafens can be worn open or closed. If you would like the option to wear yours buttoned, we recommend ordering a Jacket that has chest, waist, and hip measurements at least 2" above your own body measurements. The full measurements of this top can be seen in the final photo.
Because all materials have been pre-washed, you don't need to worry about your Flux Bene shrinking or stretching. All are machine washable and can be tumble dried.
All Flux Bene pieces are One-of-a-kind, Zero-waste, and Gender neutral.
