Paua drawstring dress - SILK COTTON
Our beautiful drawstring dress is slightly sheer with a beautiful organic print perfect with a slip underneath so light for summer and the drawstrings are adjustable so the neck can sit high wide or lower on the neck - can also be worn either side to show the different prints
Please note this garment is an organic print so each piece is slightly printed on different angles no one piece is printed the same.
PAUA PRINT MEANING
Part of our Taonga series, the base colour printed like the skin of the Paua (abalone) Inspired by looking at resources precious to Māori people, Kaimoana (seafood) being a huge part of our ancestral diet and now unfortunately a depleting resource. The almost tukutuku like white patterning overlaid is meant to mimic the movement of the Paua and other Kaimoana through the sea, a reminder to keep looking back to our natural way of life. ‘Kia mau ki to ahurea Māori’ Hold on to your Māori culture.
