Cocoon Shirt Dress (Mud Eye)
The Cocoon Shirt Dress by Lokol is one of our favorite shirt dresses! Designed with an oversized fit, it is perfect to throw on and go. Features smart collar, hidden front buttons and hidden side pockets. It is also versatile and can be worn as a jacket with all the buttons open.
It has been handcrafted in Kenya using batik fabric. Batik is a hand dyed fabric made using a wax resist technique in which wax is stamped on 100% East African cotton to create unique designs and then dyed by artisans. These stamps were created especially for Lokol.
The Mud Eye is our interpretation of a traditional mudcloth design. We were fascinated by the repeating nature of some mudcloth designs and their handmade nature. We experimented to see how that could be translated using the batik method.
Due to the nature of handmade textiles particularly batik, slight imperfections or marks may be visible. These are not defects but rather only add to the character behind each piece.
Size: S (UK 8 - 12), M (UK 14 - 18)
Fabric: 100% East African Cotton, hand batiked in Kenya
Care: Handmade garments require special care so we recommend gentle hand wash then hang to dry or cold machine wash on delicate. Due to the wax resist technique used, fabric may be stiff initially but will soften with wear.
