Recent Zazi Handmade Vintage Ikat Silk Blue & Gold Caftan Dress
This is a more recent dress from a relatively newer label called Zazi Vintage. It was founded by Jeanne de Kroon and their website best described what they do: " ZAZI is a luxury fashion label with a focus on sustainability and women's economic and social independence. Working with both vintage and organic materials, the aim is to give new life to traditional vintage and also create new pieces in partnership with women and artisans worldwide. Our collections pay fair wages, fund girls’ education, and support local artisans."
This is a dress is from the launch they called "Chapter 2' and is made from a vintage pure silk and upcycled woven Ikat in tones of blue and a gold toned yellow. The fabric is sourced from the Fergana region of Uzbekistan and each piece is handmade by the seamstresses in the workshop Zarif. It slips over the head with a notched neckline that you can button if you prefer a higher neck. The sleeves work wonderfully pushed up so that the poufed part of them is really emphasized. The waist is banded and has attached ties so you can cinch it in once on. The skirt widens as it reaches the floor and there is a high slit at one side. It is very pretty and easy to wear. Excellent condition.
Unlined and slips over the head. Attached ties can adjust the waist in. Note that there are no side or back closures so take that into account that you will need extra room to get it on, hence the size category it is placed under. Hand made and in unworn condition. This style in a comparable silk currently retails for 890 euros.
