The Amethyst skirt is truly one of a kind evoking the shimmer of a mermaid’s tail in the ocean and the vibrant colour bursts of Indian souks. Artist and designer Hannah adores slipping this skirt on over a bikini for long days at the beach.
It’s brought to life through a truly awe-inspiring process; made in a tiny village close to Jaipur, ladies sit together tying the fabric in to tiny knots in a traditional process before the cloth is twisted together and dip-dyed to create the wearable canvas. Traditional wooden blocks are used to print each piece and touches of embroidery and beading are sewn on by hand, with the finished garment helping preserve timeless artisan techniques passed down through generations of craftsmanship. Due to every inch being made by hand, each piece will vary slightly. Please do not iron to maintain its beautiful crinkle effect.
