The Rose Skirt
A dynamic A-line skirt with a removable oversized belt. The garment is made from hand-printed Nigerian adire cloth. Its printing style is done in a process similar to tie dye, though with a truly unique and joyful pattern. The skirt is breezy and comfortable, perfect for occasions smart or casual.
Made in Australia
Traditionally, adire was worn by women throughout the Yoruba region of South-Western Nigeria. It’s an indigo-dyed cotton cloth, decorated using a resist-drying technique. Each piece of the lightweight fabric, six yards long, is crafted and printed by hand before being hung to dry. This is a labour-intensive process, yielding unusual patterns of charcoal and fern green. But it’s the imperfections of this textile that make it truly special, showcasing the incredible artistry of its makers.
