Adapt to any circumstance along the journey. The Nomad is the essential dress for traveling light & simplifying your wardrobe ✭

THE DESIGN~
Tie the long belt sash so many different ways to go from a halter to strapless, criss-cross grecian bodice to a flowing skirt. Pair with your favorite crop top or jazz it up with a belt. This dress is a 'closed circle wrap' design with a flattering Aline cut, allowing it to adjust in size to be wrapped above the bust, on the natural waist line, or hips. Great for maternity wear !! Features a streamline single pocket built into one of the side seams. ~~ yay! pocket!

THE FABRIC~
The fabric I am using for this dress is an organic bamboo hemp blend jersey. It has to be the most delicious fabric I have ever encountered. The bamboo brings the softness, drape and effortless movement, while the hemp contributes a rustic feel while giving the fabric strength and substance. Brushes against your skin like the sweetest kiss and is always slightly cool to the touch. ~~ The sash fabric is a stretchy organic cotton & 5% spandex blend.

COUTURE CONSTRUCTION~
Skillfully hand-sewn for that special touch of gypsy couture with a contrasting yet complimentary colored thread. I use high quality threads and am currently working with a silk-finished cotton thread made in either Spain or Greece. ★★★ A new design feature on all my clothing for production season is a stylized artisan seam. Similar to a french seam, it is streamline, adds a heightened aesthetic, while being extremely durable to ensure a lifetime hold. For this reason, I call it the “Warrior Spine”. A unique signature to celebrate the individuality, process and authenticity of your wearable art.

HAND-DYED LOVE~
To bring variation to this luscious fabric, I am hand-dying it here in my studio in small batches. The dye I use is a low-impact cold water fiber reactive dye. The way the bamboo hemp fabric takes the dye is truly stunning~ The color holds to the hemp fibers in a slightly greater saturation than to the bamboo fibers ~ creating a multidimensional color with a chameleon effect in different lighting. As it goes with hand-dyed fabrics, the color may vary ever so slightly with each dye bath & have a subtle fade on raw edges . This is a part of the beauty of hand-dyed fibers and not a flaw ~~ Rest assured that every batch of fabric is crafted to have gorgeous color!
