Minimal BORO Silk Mini Dress. Patchwork Wabi Sabi hand dyed silk dress. Size small.
Black on black silk patchwork dress or tunic.
A dark beauty with a mix of shabby chic and avant garde minimalism.
Effortless and beyond passing trend.
Hand washable, no need for dry clean.
US women's size small (see below for measurements).
Made one at a time in our NY studio.
Inspired by "Boro" textile, (traditional Japanese patchwork clothings worn by farmers, merchants and other working folks) various shades of dark silk pieces were patched together artfully to create this one of a kind dress.
Each silk pieces are hand dyed multiple times creating rich and nuanced shades of black.
Actual colors are darker. Photo were brightened to show subtle variation of colors between different patches.
Sleeveless, v-neck and bust darts.
Sack dress with slight A-line.
Made with medium weight crepe de chine silk with elegant drape and matte texture.
Pure silk is very breathable and stays cool during warm seasons.
But it can also be surprisingly warm when layered with other thin layers of natural fibers.
Feels heavenly on bare skin, drapes oh so beautifully.
All pieces are overlock together securely without any fraying.
Readymade and ready to ship
Please note, unevenness/striation of the colors are characteristics of hand dyeing process and are not defects. Variation of colors gives this dress its distinct look.
