Handwoven Praya dress created from un-dyed, natural cotton
Our Praya Midi Dress is made of 100% traceable, organic cotton. The dress is fitted to the waist and then flares out to midi length. Puff-sleeve detailing adds that romantic feel to the dress as well as flatters the upper arm. Front pockets work in perfect symmetry with the dresses design, adding style as well as functionality. Neatly designed to be worn up or down, it's a wonderful addition to any capsule wardrobe.
Our Praya Midi Dress is made of 100% traceable, organic cotton. The cotton is grown naturally by local farmers in rural Thailand, using purely the seasons and the 'lie of the land' to water the crop. The cotton is such a beautiful natural colour we saw no reason to dye it. Meaning the only thing touching your skin is nature itself!
The cotton used in the warp is grown along the banks of the Mekong River. The river acts as its irrigation, watering the crop when it breaks its banks during the monsoon season. The cotton used for the weft is grown by local farmer 'Grandma Jo'. It's purely rain-fed and hand-spun in to yarn by Grandma Jo herself, creating the beautiful texturing in the dress we just love!
To ensure your handwoven item retains its charm and beauty for many years to come, we recommend the following:
Take care to avoid extreme heat and direct sunlight when drying or storing the product as this may cause colour fading and/or shrinkage. We recommend storing the product in a cool, shaded and dry place at all times.
Dry-clean or hand-wash only. Hand-wash inside out in cool water. Use gentle/low concentration detergent and avoid bleaches, heavy-duty detergents and stain removers. If using machine hand-wash, use a fine-mesh net for extra protection from snagging. Iron inside out on a medium to high heat.
All fabrics woven by hand may come with small knots, yarn pulls or short pieces of thread – these irregularities do not affect the quality or future durability of the product. We feel these irregularities only add to the uniqueness and individualism of our products.
