Hemp Dress

Description

£185
The very first dress in our clothing range.
Made from golden Romanian hemp to rival the finest linens and gilded with facings made from hand woven silk/cotton ikat.

The hemp is grown and processed by a co-operative, without the use of harmful scouring or bleaching chemicals, pesticides or herbicides.
The ikat is hand dyed and woven on treadle looms in Bali, Indonesia, where the incredibly skilled craftspeople are getting a good wage for their work.

This dress is hand made in our small studio.
We currently have in stock a small (10) and medium (12) in the un-dyed hemp, and a large (14) in the grey heather. Other sizes will be made to order.

The grey heather coloured hemp is hand dyed by us, using our organic process. The fabric for each dress is dyed individually with natural dyes, so the colour may vary slightly each time.

Concept:
The design of this dress is based loosely around the apron. With it I intended to explore the potential for creating beauty from the everyday; pleasure from the familiar.
With time the hemp fabric will mould itself to your movements, becoming irrefutably yours, echoing the daily movements of your life.

It is designed so that it may be worn over another garment or on its own. The side seams are slightly adjustable, so that the fit can be altered accordingly.

The facings allow the neckline to be either turned back to reveal the ikat fabric, or left as a simple, vertical opening. The hem of the dress is also faced with ikat, which peeps through as you walk.
