The inspiration behind the Papaya short was a desire for simplicity. A return to a simple garment that is easy to wear with anything to anywhere when it's too hot for pants. The Papaya features an elastic waistband, invisible side seam pockets, wide hem, and long inseam that hits mid-thigh. These wide-leg shorts look almost like a skirt with its loose and flowy shape. 

Material and Care 

1. Fabric: Linen in mustard, sand, black, avocado

Fiber Content: 100% Linen in 4.7 oz

Description:  Linen is a natural fiber that has minimal environmental impacts. Given its properties, it's easy to love, maintain, and wash. Our medium-weight linen has a luxe hand feel that drapes beautifully with each design. Although it's soft and light, it does not pill. 

Care: Preshrunk and machine washable. Wash on normal with cool water. Tumble dry or hang dry (which we prefer). Linen wears over time and will soften with each wash.

* Wash avocado colored garments separately or with black as color may bleed onto other garments in the wash. * 

2. Fabric: Linen/Organic Cotton Chambray

Fiber Content: 60% organic linen and 40% organic cotton in 5.5 oz

Description:  Our first organic linen blend that is eco-friendly and has been minimally processed. It's slightly more structured than our other colors, but also light enough to wear in any season. Also in a medium-weight, it's easy to maintain and wash. 

Care: Preshrunk and machine washable. Wash on normal with cool water. Tumble dry on low heat or hang dry (which we prefer). 

3. Fabric: Surplus Cotton Seersucker 

Fiber Content: 100% Cotton 

Description: A cotton seersucker that is light, fresh, and airy. It's 100% deadstock cotton meaning it was leftover from other fashion brands. The subtle oat stripe mixed with the texture of seersucker is a beautiful combination for this summer fabric. 

Care: Preshrunk and machine washable. Wash on normal with cool water. Tumble dry on low heat or hang dry (which we prefer).

Sizing

 Sotela's approach to sizing is a little different. Instead of using the conventional small, medium and large, we've decided to change our wording because we can! We want to keep things simple. 

 


Based on the guide above, measure yourself to compare with the garment's measurements. Find the garment's measurements under the 'sizing and fit' tab. Use those measurements to see which size corresponds with your measurements. 

For example, if you have a 38" bust, 31" waist and 41" hip, you would be a size 2 in most items. 
If you have any questions, please email your measurements to hello@sotela.co!
