Nani Pani Celia Sleevless Dress
The concept of Nani Pani was born during an adventure in Rajasthan, India when we studied the centuries-old Indian handicraft of wood block printing. From the carving of the blocks, the natural alchemy of dyes, the family communities of artisans, and the amazing history of this art-- what an incredible process. Block printing, like many other indigenous and labor-intensive art forms, struggles to remain sustainable. The appeal of collaborating with skilled artisans to help preserve the art of hand block printing while creating something beautiful was the beginning of what is now Nani Pani.
100% cotton voile. Inspired by one of our favorite vintage pieces, our Celia dress is handcrafted in Bagru, India. Skilled artisans use a centuries-old block print technique to create intricate patterns on gauzy cotton voile. Each one reflects the hand of the individual artisan, and no two garments are exactly alike.
This sleeveless dress has pockets on the side seams, which makes it not only beautiful but also functional. Wrap the optional self-tie belt around the waist for a more fitted look, or leave the belt off for a looser fit that looks effortless and relaxed. Dress is sheer and gauzy.
