Tie Apron Shift Dress - Fence Print
4 pieces were made in each size.
If you are after a playful, versatile add on piece to your wardrobe, look no further. Our handspun, hand-loomed light khadi tie apron shift is made of a natural front panel and a slightly longer back panel in our red fence block print. With two simple ties on either side, you can wear it loosely tied, wrapped to the front or back for a different look. It is also the perfect piece to layer over a collared shirt or polo neck and our tailored pants. Take it to summer and it will be a fun little summer dress.
Hooked rugs in folk art are an enchanting object, which in a way encompass many of the inspirations of each pattern the collaborators have worked with in creating each garment's quality in pattern and image. The core of this does come from the background of each creative involved, which involves visuality and storytelling. Hooked rugs have been described as essentially, ‘paintings in fabric’, and one could argue that individual expression through adorning oneself in garments; could be a personal expression of a theme which honours visual representation across all boundaries in life.
