In September we got down to work on an idea that we had been thinking about for a long time: to make a series of beautiful, comfortable, flattering dresses, wearable in formal and informal occasions and that, with a one size fits all, could be used by women of different styles, bodies and ages.
We made prototypes, tests, corrections, new prototypes, new tests… and here are our proposals.
The first decision we made, and the one that took us the least time, was the material to use: It’s a summer dress and we are knitters so how could we not opt for linen!
Its characteristics make it ideal for summer clothing: it is resistant and durable, lightweight, elegant, breathable and comfortable, has antibacterial and fungicidal properties and neutralizes unpleasant odors. It is easy to wash, it can be ironed, it is fresh, hypoallergenic, pleasant to the skin and we love to weave it on the loom.
In this white dress we have combined it with bamboo, another fiber with very similar characteristics that also gives the fabric a great fall and shine that are enhanced with every movement you make.
Like all our pieces, the fabric of this dress is hand-woven on a traditional loom, for this we have used a warp of 10 linen threads per centimeter, and, as we said, the weft is made of bamboo.
It will not shrink when you wash it because we have already washed it, by hand and with organic soap, which is what we recommend you do when it is yours and iron it when it is still a little damp.
The straps are adjusted by the traditional method of tying at the height you need, so you can adjust the depth of the neckline in the way that best suits you and you can let the fabric fall free or tighten it under the chest with the inner tape that serves to regulate the folds according to your size.
And how can you use it? When are you going to wear it?
If you are going to spend the day touring a city because you are sightseeing or shopping… wear your dress, comfortable shoes and sun protection.
If you are going to have a drink with your friends at night and you are wearing it, bring a comfortable bag and a scarf in case it cools down.
If you go with him to the beach: a sarong, flip-flops and more sun protection.
If you are going to a celebration … complement it with beautiful shoes and a black silk shawl.
You may think we’re repeating ourselves, but we see you with him in all these situations and more.
If you like it, just think about which color suits you best.
