our best selling vienna dress, in a bold indigo print. universally flattering, this is our go-to summer dress.
hand block printed by a family of master printers in bagru, india using natural indigo dye and "dabu" mud printing method. mud is stamped to form the pattern and sawdust is applied to create a barrier before the fabric is dipped into a 12' deep indigo vat. once washed and dried in the sun, the indigo and imperfect print appear. the color of the blue varies a bit piece to piece, which is all part of the beauty.
the unique and imperfect beauty of this dye and printing method comes with special qualities. therefore, careful care is essential to maintain the color and minimize dye transfer. skin transfer is unlikely but possible, and be mindful of transfer to lighter fabrics that might rub against the fabric. fading is normal and adds to the story.
*note shade of blue varies slightly from photos and varies from piece to piece*
