Crafted in naturally dyed silk in Bangladesh, this dress is crafted for a loose fit and comes with a hand stitched double-sided blackwork embroidered belt from the Miao community. The embroidery is a heritage craft unique to the Zhai Tou village in Guizhou, China. Style belt as neck scarf for variety.

- 100% Silk
- Size 36 on model; length: 80cm

Master embroider Wan Mei Du from Guizhou organizes the women in the village for blackwork embroidery, a cross-stitch technique that is uniquely designed to give the exact motifs on both sides of the cloth. This belt panel prints a picture of field of chili pepper flowers. 

With a carefully planned sustainable production cycle, the indigo initiative at our partnering fair trade textile supplier, Living Blue, is integrated into the agricultural cycle where fermentation discharge is used to replace chemical nitrogen fertilizer.

Empower these community to keep the heritage craft alive through this lovely piece.
