Lisbon Dress in Indigo Fan Block Print
• Editor Notes:
This 100% light maxi dress comes with a tie belt for those of you who love packing light.
Wear the scoop neckline dress free flowing allowing the dropped tiered hem to sway freely or cinch yourself at the waist for a more constructed look.
We absolutely love the Lisbon dress for a multitude of reasons. Firstly, the colour stands out bright and is suitable to all skin tones. The dress is great for those who choose to be more covered from the sun, or for an evening out dancing.
Pair yours with sandals or wedges, a sun hat or clutch bag and enjoy yourself!
The hand printing technique means the colour of the blue print varies a bit piece to piece, which is all part of the beauty.

NB: This caftan is hand dyed using indigo, a natural dye derived from the neel plant. The pattern is hand block printed by master printers in Bagru, India using the dabu method, where mud is stamped and sawdust is applied to create a barrier before the fabric is dipped in the 12' deep indigo vat.
The unique and imperfect beauty of this dye and printing method comes with special qualities. Therefore, careful care is essential to maintain the colour. Be mindful of transfer to lighter fabrics that come into contact, which is possible. fading is normal and adds to the story.
