Loose-fitted, flowy dress made from handpicked vintage saris. The dress has long sleeves with cuffs and a wide frill at the bottom. The mother of pearl button closure at front can be left open for a more casual look.
The dress comes with a detachable belt you can wear for a more defined waistline.
All SISSEL EDELBO garments are made from saris which, before being upcycled, have been worn by women in India. Therefore, you might find tiny flaws such as marks, a stain, or a loose thread. These marks are a part of the fabric’s authentic story, and signs of a life lived. At SISSEL EDELBO that is exactly what is loved and cherished. We hope that you will see the beauty in the imperfect perfection, too, and carry it on with pride. In this way THE STORY CONTINUES.
Since the fabric is reused, not much is known about its origin, only that it has been worn as a sari. Information about the exact composition of the fabric is therefore not available.
Size: One size. Fits size S-L.
Material: Unknown (vintage sari)
Made in India
The core of the Danish brand SISSEL EDELBO is up-cycling of vintage saris and a love for Indian culture. Since 2004, the two founders Jeanne Sissel Thomsen and Christina Edelbo Petersen have traveled to India frequently to handpick saris for their sustainable collections.
SISSEL EDELBO mixes print and mystery with a simple nordic cut, so customers can choose sustainable clothes and enable the story of the saris to continue. All of the styles are made of cleaned up-cycled saris, and every single one of them are designed with love and care for Mother Earth.
SISSEL EDELBO supports a sustainable, vibrant future for the fashion industry and for the world. Each piece tells the story of the Indian heritage and the amazing women, all dressed in their traditional vibrant saris.
