Shirt Dress (Stripes II)

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 Stripes pattern reflect the handmade nature of these fabrics as they are not always straight but nevertheless, create a wonderful and unique pattern.
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 - 10), M (UK 12) and L (UK 14) - As the waist is fitted, you can go up a size if you want a looser fit or have a larger bust area.
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.
