anguilla in white + poppy
our short anguilla dress is back, this time with a balloon sleeve and tie front. this dress is made of 2 layers of super soft jamdani fabric.
jamdani is a special weave that takes great time and skill to create. the entire process happens without aid of modern technology. each "buti," as the white motif is called, is woven by hand, one line at a time as the fabric itself is woven on a hand loom. this heritage craft is native to the indian state of west bengal where this fabric is woven by the skilled craftsmen and women we work with. this fabric is woven in small villages, in the homes of weavers, and every part of the process takes place locally and without the aid of electricity.
body is lined; sleeves unlined. true to size in shoulders and wide fit in the body. alyssa is 5'8" and wears a small. fit questions or need more measurements? shoot us a note!
small: 33.5" long; medium: 34" long; large: 34.5" long.
take care when cleaning this fabric. always wash in cold water with a gentle detergent (no bleach!). it will air dry nicely. warm iron if needed. dry cleaning works as well.
comes packed in a reusable fabric pouch.
