venice blockprinted dress
this is the back to school, back to work, welcome fall dress you'll pull for again and again. made of 100% cotton, this caftan-dress hybrid has voluminous sleeves and we like to cinch the waist by double wrapping the wide belt. we named it after the romantic city of venice, where we envision wearing it for an october stroll over the bridges and through the tiny cobbled walkways.
button closure on the keyhole neckline. elastic on the sleeve cuffs. hidden side pockets.
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. it is important to note that the "blind" printing process required to create this pattern results in visible lines between the block prints.
the color is best described as a clay/blush base with black/brown printing. the overall effect has an eggplant undertone.
