Dress Mon I


Available March 2018

mon (Assamese) - mind

This dress is part of our Mon-Collection, which is available in three different colors: burgundy (dyed with lac), beige stripes (dyed with the leaves of the teak tree) and in natural cream color. The dress is hand-spun and hand-woven by our team in Assam and sewn by designer Irena in Leipzig. The silk is called eri silk and cultivated by Assamese tribal communities South West of Guwahati. It is a wild silk and the moth leaves a hole in the cocoon as it has to be empty before it can be processed. Therefore it has a structure which is rather similar to linen. No chemicals or pesticides have been used during the process.
The dress has a relaxed fit and is available in sizes XS - S - M - L - XL. The model wears size M. The fabric is soft and an inner dress is added for the dress in white in order to avoid transparency.
