The Raphael dress is a tulip shaped dress in a maxi length. This is a plus sized dress that suits curvy women with a floaty feeling to the tailoring.
It is printed using a technique called Dabu - which is a mud resist hand block print using a fermented indigo vat to dye the fabric. (see our blog post - The indigo blues).
Large = 20- 22
Noor - Eco block prints - slow fashion at work.
Our printers use no harsh chemicals in the printing of the fabric.
Each dress is made with 100% organic cotton and is machine washable at low temperatures.
Our pigment prints use ISO free dyes with no acid bath process to fix the print. Instead the fabric is cooked in an oven to fix the dye and make it machine washable. Our printers use plant enzymes to wash the fabric before printing instead of the traditional use of bleach. All our water is recycled through a digester unit which uses plant enzyme technology to digest any dyes left in the water after printing - this allows our printers to recycle more than 80% of the water they use. This is essential for the sustainability of this craft in the desert state of Rajasthan where our printers are located.
