Bikini style undergarment dyed with ground cochineal, an insect grown on the nopal cactus. Simple and sophisticated, with narrow sides and higher cuts, the bikini style offers classically 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.
