Description

In collaboration with the Natural History Museum, our women’s organic cotton Porthcressa vest features a strappy racer back with a subtle gathered neck. The classic nautical stripe pattern features an embroidered bee on the reverse, taken straight from the original illustrations of the pioneering 17th century naturalist Maria Sibylla Merian.

As a symbol of our need to protect the natural world during the climate crisis, Maria’s bee encapsulates how past knowledge can inspire the future.

A German-born naturalist and scientific illustrator, Maria travelled the world’s oceans observing insects and flora. For more information about her life and work, read the full story over on the Broadcast.

Very good

Lovely fabric, nice fit, really nice print. A bit expensive for a sun top but I like your eco ethos. Will continue to give you custom based on this first buy.

Beautiful!

Lovely top. I was uncertain about the pattern from the website and worried it was a bit 'busy'. But it looks lovely in reality, the deep blue background really sets off the pattern and it's beautiful. The top fabric is smooth, heavy and slippery, which is a lovely combination and feels very high quality. Comfortable and flattering, my favourite top.

A great throw on top

This is a great top to throw on. It look more elegant than a t-shirt but not at all fussy. I’d buy it in a range of colours.
