Long-sleeved dress in cotton crepe printed in all-over with blue flowers on an ecru background. The neckline is trimmed with a lace braid, the small V-shaped neckline at the back, the head passage facilitated by the opening of 2 fabric-covered buttons in the shoulder seam, the ribbed pleats on the small yoke, the high waist, so many small details that embellish the classic cut of this dress.
The hyacinth motif, exclusive to Emile and Ida, is executed in block print which is an Indian artisanal technique of printing with carved wooden blocks.
Fabrics printed with block print age well but it is normal for the pattern to lose some of its intensity with each wash. This technique allows for a return to craftsmanship and the appreciation of the manual gesture. Manual means imperfection. We find indeed an irregular and imperfect side of the patterns, which also brings all the authenticity to the product.
