Timeless vintage print on a luxuriously soft and flowy silhouette. Transition effortlessly from day to night and through the seasons. Layers beautifully over workwear, lounge pants, maxi dresses, cheeky shorts or bikinis for a touch of bohemian glam. 

Hand printed on modal silk using vintage hand carved wooden blocks and mud resist. Modal is a lower impact fabric made from fast growing wood pulp. It's less environmentally damaging than cotton and has a soft, silky and very lush texture. 

Ajrak is a sophisticated form of hand printing dating back to medieval times. Distinguished by extremely intricate geometrical and floral patterns and the use of natural colors, this process has almost 15 different stages of dyeing and printing and each piece takes about two weeks to complete.
