Orchid Hip Huggers
Hip hugger style undergarment dyed with ground cochineal, an insect grown on the nopal cactus. Elegant and modern, with fuller sides and trimmer angles, the hip hugger style offers magnificently flattering comfort and coverage. Cut, dyed, and sewn by hand in Amy's Chicago studio, 95% cotton/5% lycra.
Extracting color from the females, cochineal has been used to dye fabric, cosmetics, and food for over 600 years. Cochineal insects yield sensational fuchsias.
