This body of this dress is made of a custom merino wool & cotton striped twill, designed and woven in Chicago by The Weaving Mill, based on drawings by artist Nuria Montiel. After coming off the loom, each fabric is felted slightly to create a textural play between the merino wool and the more stable cotton. The result is a soft, warm, but lightweight cloth reminiscent of cashmere. The sides of the tunic are made of a sumptuous 4-ply black silk crepe woven in Korea.
All pieces are cut and sewn in our Logan Square workshop using a slow fashion model of manufacture and can be customized to your measures and preferences.
Made in-house in the USA
