krabi blockprinted wrap dress
we love a good wrap dress, so we couldn't help making our own. ours has pockets (!), a long sash and a dramatic wide sleeve.
this fabric is hand block printed in small batches by a family of 4th generation printers in bagru, india. drips and print imperfections show the handmade quality and are part of the beauty.
this print is made using discharge printing techniques-- once the fabric is dyed, the print is done in what we liken to invisible ink-- the printer can't really make out the pattern as he prints and only the sun makes the print appear.
the base fabric is called "khadi" - the yarns are hands-spun and the fabric is hand loomed. this technique creates a durable, absorbent, soft and lofty fabric. we love its versatility and feel, especially for warm weather.
s/m fits 0-4 or 6. m/l fits 6 or 8 - 12.
care: hand wash cold using gentle detergent, avoid bleach, drip dry. you can use a warm iron to smooth out any wrinkles.
comes packed in a reusable fabric pouch.
