Short black dress made from upcycled silk sari. The dress has long sleeve and a characteristic, oversized collar with pintuck details.
This dress is part of Sissel Edelbo’s exclusive NOIR PURE SILK concept. The dress is made from recycled silk saris, which have been dyed to become part of the NOIR COLLECTION. The silk saris used in the NOIR collection are in various shades of black and some have prints that are still visible after dyeing. Some have small unique embroideries that tell the story of the previous use of the sari. This just contributes to the uniqueness of every dress.
All SISSEL EDELBO dresses are made from recycled saris, previously worn by women in India. Therefore, you might find tiny flaws such as marks, stains, loose threads and small repairs, which are a part of the fabric’s authentic story. At SISSEL EDELBO that is exactly what is loved and cherished, and hopefully you will see the beauty in these imperfections too.
One size, fits US size 6-16.
