The long sleeve shirt dress is a great relaxed summer option. Like any classic old fashioned work dress, it has a crisp collar to protect the neck, a 3 button front placket, sleeves tab for a rolled up option and a back placket for ease of movement. It has certainly become a favourite for new mums who like the easy feeding options but is a loved item for the sun conscious, the artists who love a good smock, the minimalists who will wear it buttoned up with docs. But then I have seen it on classic beauties with pearls and loafers and thrown over bathers as a summer cover-up.
Our bold indigo mud resist stripe is inspired by the French bold stripes favoured in summer and symbolic of the French Riviera.Handloom Cotton

The Dabu or mud resist print is a traditional printing technique of Rajasthan. Textiles are block-printed with a mix of melasses and mud which are then covered in sawdust and dried. When dip-dyed in natural indigo vats, the block-printed details resists the dye and allows the patterns to form. It is a time-intensive process that requires a long curing and subsequent washing of the fabric.
