this sweet summer midi dress is handloomed to create a textured cotton, which is then panel printed by master printers in india. the adjustable straps are drawstrings, creating a modern ruffle strap.
this fabric is hand block printed in small batches by a family of 4th generation printers in bagru, india. each part of the sustainable process is done by hand in this printing village. drips and print imperfections show the handmade quality and are part of the beauty.
the base fabric is called "khadi" - the yarns are hand-spun and the fabric is then hand loomed. this technique creates a durable, absorbent, soft fabric with a linen-like texture.
