Recent Zazi Vintage Silk Ikat "Madhu" Bliue & Gold Caftan Dress
This is a more recent dress from a new 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, a style they call the Madhu, is from one of their earliest launches and is made from a vintage silk Ikat in blue and gold. The fabric is sourced from the Fergana region of Uzbekistan and each piece is handmade by the seamstresses from IPHD in Bhikamkor (rural Rajasthan). 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 hem line is cut on a curve to meet a 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.
