"I take sustainable fashion seriously. Organic clothing shoppers can rest easy knowing I design the Sympatico collection with respect for the earth and its people. Each piece is handcrafted in the US using eco-friendly, nontoxic hemp and Tencel to offer years of timeless style."

As a small business, I buy fabric and dye goods in small batches so making color matches can be challenging. My two fabric weights often emerge from the dye bath with subtly different shading. Though the two garments may have slightly different shade values, they still look great together.

When ordering, please let me know if an exact shade match is essential. If I don't have it in stock, I can often match garment shades using fabric from the same dye bath. If I need extra time to cut and sew, I’ll let you know when to expect delivery.

If you are comfortable with garments having similar (but not necessarily exact) shades, there's no need to check the box when placing an order for two or more items of the same color.

Your size/color not in stock? If I have the fabric, I can make it to order. Learn more or send me an email to check availability.

Our versatile, bestselling Tuxedo Top is great layered or alone. Like the entire Sympatico line of women’s hemp/Tencel clothing, it's handcrafted in the US to offer many seasons of wear.

  • 4-button band closure
  • In-seam darts
  • Side vents
  • Three-quarter sleeves
  • Flattering angled hemline
  • Longer back measures approximately 26".
  • Generous fit, runs large. If you are petite, order a size smaller.
  • Hand-crafted in the USA.

Fabric/Care:

  • Light Weight woven 55% hemp and 45% Tencel™ (lyocell)
  • Preshrunk: machine wash, tumble or line dry

Light Weight is a breezy 4-oz. square weave to help keep your summer cool. Used only on Sympatico tops, it dries quickly and is slightly more prone to wrinkles than our Mid Weight fabric*. It's great in the tropics and on those steamy summer days! Both weights are soft and comfy and let your skin breathe.

Our sustainable hemp/Tencel fabric blend is easy to care for. To enhance its wonderfully supple hand and keep your clothes looking their best, follow these eco-friendly tips:

  1. Launder in cold water with like colors using an eco-friendly detergent. To preserve original color, launder garment inside out.
  2. We recommend you air-dry your Sympatico clothes to reduce energy consumption.
  3. Because the hemp content may produce wrinkles and develop a somewhat firm hand during laundering and air-drying, tumble your dry clothes in a warm dryer for a few minutes to relax wrinkles and soften the fabric's hand. (Because hemp softens with wear, this step becomes unnecessary as your garment ages.)
  4. Promptly remove clothes from the dryer and let them cool down on hangers.
  5. If needed, touch up collars and hems with a hot iron. To prevent possible shine from a setting that's too-high, iron inside out.
  6. When traveling, roll up your Sympatico clothes then hang them up on arrival. A quick spritz with water will help eliminate wrinkles. (I find spritzing my craft fair inventory on hangers works like a charm for releasing wrinkles that develop during travel.) Hanging wrinkled items in a steamy bathroom is a great alternative to ironing also.

Thanks to hemp's anti-microbial properties you'll probably find that you launder your Sympatico wear less often, reducing the energy your clothes consume.

    Gorgeous garment!

    Posted by Unknown on 25th Oct 2017

    Such supple fabric! I wasn't sure what the light-weight version would be like and was most impressed. Judging by the two different weights in the two different tops I have, the heavier is good for a jacket or cold-weather wear, while the light-weight can fly in warmer weather, under a sweater, jacket, coat... Really happy with this top!

    Great product and great value!

    I ordered the tuxedo lightweight top, my first Sympatico. It won't be the last! The fit is comfortable, the fabric hand soft and breathable and it doesn't wrinkle like silk. People are asking, "Is it Eileen Fisher?" A beautiful garment for a fraction of what I'd pay Eileen.

    I purchased this top to go with the angled skirt and absolutely love the way it fits. I have a really hard time finding clothes that hang right on my body type and this just looks so elegant. I will be purchasing more from you. Thanks so much!
