ALUNAN - Structured Dress in Porcelain
You dream of a timeless dress that you can wear from day to night, effortless. A dress that stands the test of time and elevates your wardrobe. The one that will accompany you through many, many memories and milestones. You've finally found her.
WHAT TO EXPECT
- As beautiful as a painting. The white background takes 1 Ibu (mother) 5 days to just draw in wax. The deep blue cracks show its journey, dipped in Indigo by hands, making each a true work of art.
- You get options. She can be worn in multiple ways which keeps us needing less and getting more out of the pieces we have and love. Wear as is, unbutton halfway and combine it with our Silk Kain for formal events, or fully unbutton and wear it as an outer-vest ;)!
- So comfortable. Trust me. Once you feel the difference of breathable natural fabrics, you cannot go back.
Focus on what matters in life. We don't believe in beauty pains. Or sacrificing movement just for looks. That's why this dress has deep pockets. Side slits for movement. A built in ribbon for fit. You're welcome.
Model 1 is 160cm, EU Size S. She wears size I.
Model 2 is 165cm, EU Size L. She wears size II.
ALUNAN is a reminder to slow down. To be present in a melody of flowers. A moment that is gone in a heartbeat, but lives forever in your heart.
Your Porcelain piece is a true work of art. It's marbled white is achieved from a reverse Batik process: 1 Ibu ('mother') would cover the whole background with beeswax for 3 days. Its beauty came from the natural blue lines that came through the crack of the wax when the master-dyer hand-dyes it for more than 1 week.
