Description:

This dress was inspired the clothing worn by the women of Djajibinni in Mauritania. Their dresses are simplistic in construction and design, the cloth is cut away from the body, allowing the air to circulate around the wearer, essential during the warmer seasons. Our dress features side pockets and they are deep to stash a good couple of bits and bobs without falling out as you go about your day. The neckline is elegant and flattering while providing coverage and the subtle Keffiyeh cuff and hem lends the dress the right amount of detail without being too fussy. The dress comes with an optional Keffiyeh belt, so you’re able to change the silhouette up a bit whenever you please.

The dress is cut from sturdy yet light weight cotton twill. This is a durable cloth that is easy to care and always looks crisp and polished. It is tea length so that in the warmer months you can wear it simply on its own or layer it with our cropped trouser and kimono during winter.

Material:

The fabric is twill and it is made from a blend of Cotton and Polyester fibres. This fabric is incredibly durable, it’s one of the toughest fabrics out there! Yet it is lightweight and very comfortable to spend the day in. In summer, this fabric will keep you cool and in winter it will keep you warm. Gotta love naturally insulating fabrics!

Fit:

The dress is loose fitting and flattering on all shapes and sizes, as it is an A-line silhouette. It is a tea length dress, we currently don't offer any alterations on our lengths but they can be easily hemmed at your local tailor or seamstress.
