Vietnam, Kilomet109, Vân Dress
This graceful long dress is made of luxurious "Vân", a traditional Vietnamese silk that comes from an ancient silk village on the outskirts of Hanoi. What makes the silk so striking are the submerged intricate patterns that are woven directly into the fabric, creating a subtle and alluring texture. The contrasting facing on all of the seams and hems is crafted from up-cycled fabric from antique Thái ethnic cloth. The buttons on the dress are handmade glass with multi-colored hand crotched loops on the placket.
The fabric is hand dyed in ebony fruit (charcoal version), and indigo (blue version), by two groups of Vietnamese artisans from the Khmer and Nùng An groups respectively.
