We have fallen in love with ikat fabric designs. It represents everything Project 6 feels close to. We love the colors and feel of the fabric. It's bright and has a very lightweight feel. The ikat is woven by hand by skilled weavers. It is a dying craft as machines are taking over the production. Many people have lost their jobs due to this economic change. We love to support these talented artists and keep handmade work current and available. We wanted to create a dress that brings out the beauty of this workmanship without it being too busy looking. We created a soft and simple dress.
We love this dress belted in a pretty bow, or without for a more relaxed look. The dress looks beautiful when it's ironed, but can be worn as is, as well! We think this would be a great "beach to street dress" and hope it will be a closet staple. It's perfect for those days that you don't want to style, but look styled! And even better, throw on a pair of heels and an Aviv belt and you can wear it for an evening out! Enjoy!
