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. 

The Papaya Shorts are available in 100% Linen in black, agave, terra, and cacao, and in tencel gingham. 

Material and Care 

Fabric: Linen 

Fiber Content: 100% Linen in 5.5 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. We selected a slightly heavier weight than last year's linen to ensure your pieces last longer and do not pill or tear. 

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.

2. Fabric: Tencel Seersucker

Fiber Content: 100% Tencel

Description: This black and white 1/4" tencel seersucker is the perfect subtle print to add to your wardrobe. This fabric is lightweight with a fluid drape and a soft, slightly crinkly seersucker texture. This fabric is opaque, but we recommend pairing it with skin colored undergarments. 

Care: Wash cold on delicate cycle and hang dry. The Earth and your garments will thank you!

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!
