Vietnam, Kilomet109, Mùa Batik Dress
This dress is one of Kilomet109's most popular pieces. It's made from lightweight 100% organic cotton that's been indigo dyed with hand drawn batik by artisans from Vietnam's Blue H'mong community. The broken line design is a non-traditional motif, and is the result of a collaboration between Kilomet109 and Blue H'mong artisans. Each line is drawn using a traditional bamboo pen with a copper tip that is dipped into melted beeswax like an old-fashioned quill and then drawn directly onto the white cotton fabric. The fabric is then dyed in indigo and boiled to remove the beeswax and reveal the white lines, like a relief drawing.
This versatile dress is a wonderful example of Kilomet109 design innovation. It is sophisticated yet practical and can be styled multiple ways, creating distinctive folds and silhouettes based on how the loops and straps are tied. Two front pockets allow you to leave your pocketbook at home. All buttons are made of hand blown glass in Hanoi.
