Corte Wrap Dress 11: size S/M
This is a one-of-a-kind cotton wrap dress made with repurposed traditional corte <cortay>, a wrap skirt. The particular corte selected for this dress is spectacular in its incorporation of ikat (a dye-resist technique performed on threads before weaving) for both the warp and weft. This means that both vertical and horizontal threads have been carefully knotted precisely and then dyed and handwoven on wooden pedal looms to create the intricate patterns found in the textile.
Two inner pockets make this a super cozy dress to feel comfortable in both while at home and out. And it comes with a matching mask :)
This dress fits loosely like sizes S and M.
Waist: 34 inches
