This little black dress offers maximum impact for minimum effort. The skirt has the perfect amount of flare, and the figure-hugging top with its flattering V neck will make it your go-to piece for everyday-anywhere duty. The front incorporates traditional Andean motifs handwoven by women in Peru. It's made of a super-soft, flexible fabric that will feel like a second skin and will get you through the summer months like a breeze.
This is a limited edition of 100 pieces. Because of the intricate handmade details, we make very small runs of each design, so you can rest assured that you’ll be wearing a unique piece that very few people in the world will have.
We follow the World Fair Trade Organisation's guidelines to ensure our practices are fair and improve the lives of those who work with us.
The strip with the Andean motifs has been handmade by women in a rural community in the Peruvian Andes. We pay them a fair wage and help the ones that want to set up their own local businesses. We also dedicate part of the profits to undertake development projects chosen by the women in the communities.
The dress was tailored in a small family-run factory in Lima. We only work with small factories that respect workers' rights and treat them with the love and respect they deserve.
The handmade motifs
Each motif tells a story. The motif that looks like an X and an O is called tankachuro (or churo for short), it's also known as the design of the mamas (moms) because it's one of the first that they teach their children. The circular shapes represent the eyes of the lama.
Please note that each woman may weave the motifs slightly differently so the ones in your clothes might not look exactly the same as the ones in the picture. This makes every piece unique and special.
This dress is made of 100% viscose for a super soft feel. The fabric is flexible for a comfortable fit that adapts to the higher part of your body.
The motifs have been made using a blend of alpaca and sheep wool, so they are soft to the touch.
