    Dual Bandolierros
    Description: Black/purple/gray field with turquoise highlights, rainbow batik. For such a complicated shirt, it comes off pretty simply.
    Size: large
    Design: Dual Bandoliers
    Fold type: Vertical 1/4 fold off-center, diagonal pleats
    Direction: Even pleats beginning in the inside corner diagonally outwards
    White space: 2-inch wide strip right down center of pleats
    Tie-dye color: Black/purple/gray with turquoise highlights
    Batik color: Turquoise/purple - purple/magenta/orange/yellow
    Ties: 8pt (4/4)
    Most salient zen feature: Contrast issues with the turquoise - subtle, but it works.

    All shirts are handmade using Hanes Beefy-T™ 100% cotton shirts and Procion™ fiber reactive dyes. Each shirt is designed as an individual. The process involves folding, tying & dying - drying - seperate front and back wax designs and a 2nd dye application - wax removal and washing. The shirts have been washed thoroughly and are safe to wash with other laundry. Shirts may be a little stiff from batiking and will soften up quickly with wear.
