~* Embroidered Paisley Dress *~
Inspired by the mandala and paisley designs found in wedding mehndi (henna) and the beautiful art work in Nepal and India we designed this stunning cotton embroidered paisley dress. Made from the softest cotton jersey it has a slight stretch for perfect fit, but is smooth and breathable too. The hand printed designs are offset for a modern look and accented in bright embroidery for a unique look. The modest v neck and waist band create a flattering shape and the wide shoulders protect you from the sun. The skirt hem has a wide band to give weight and ensure a perfectly fit skirt that stays put.
The printing on this paisley dress is done in-house at our small family run factory in Kathmandu. The patterns always come out slightly different each time – this adds to the unique character of the garments, and the placement often differs slightly too! An easy to wear garment that is handmade and fair trade and looks gorgeous!
Part of our new Mandala Collection, inspired by the beautiful mandala artwork seen on our travels around Nepal.
100% Cotton + Trimmings. Handmade and Fairly Traded from Nepal with Love. Suitable for Vegans
