All Day Dress Bougainvillea Jaspe
Drawing on inspiration from vintage summer dress patterns from the '70s, we set out to create a dress that would offer comfort, style, and versatility.
A flattering squared off neck complements the easy fit and slightly ruffled hemline.
Side slash pockets add function and comfort.
The All-Day Dress is perfect for wherever life takes you.
We love the way the rich coral color plays with a more muted and subtle mustard striping in this new colorway - which might just be a new favorite!
About this product
This cotton jaspe was handwoven by Manuel on a foot loom in Nahuala.
Jaspe (known as Ikat in other cultures) is a resist-dye technique. Threads are bound to achieve a given pattern and dipped in dye baths. The areas of bound fabric will resist the dye. Depending on the complexity of the design and number of colors used, the binding and dyeing process might be repeated numerous times.
Once dyed and dried, the threads are arranged on the loom, which can take a week just to set up. The artisan painstakingly ensures that the threads are arranged in order so as to obtain the desired design. This is often why ikat textiles can look blurred.
The dress is hand sewn in Antigua by master sewer and patternmaker, Irma
