Hand-painted cotton twill in bright green, navy blue and white naval coastal colours using traditional West African Batik technique. This day dress has a great fit owing to the material composition of cotton twill. The Ralph green print with navy and white dots on green is inspired by the coastal colours found in the Cape Coast area where the silk fabric was printed. The dress is elegantly finished with a Bogolanfini, Malian hand-printed mud cloth detail. Designed, Hand-painted and Handmade in Ghana and Mali with local artisans. We work with an artisan in Cape Coast that has been batiking for generations. She learned from her mother who was also a batiker and her daughter is a batiker. Watch the making of this print.
