The ingredients Please be aware that these unique pieces are created from vintage textiles, which have had a previous life, so consequently there may be the odd very minor smudge to the surface. These in no way impinge on their beauty, and you can be sure that they do not compromise the integrity of the material. Our saris are cleaned and checked for flaws prior to making, and we cut around any significant marks.
Any area of actual damage or thinning is repaired with a little embroidered patch using a visible mending technique (one of my favourite features!), and this is always clearly mentioned in the description. These should be seen as an enhancement to the garment, and a sign of the textile's previous life and history.
This is a deliberate choice to fit in with our ethos of creating beautiful garments with minimal impact on the planet.
IMPORTANT: Please be sure to read both our shipping and refund policy pages before placing an order (links to both at foot of page). By placing an order you are indicating you have read and accepted these terms.
Sizing As the fit of all these garments is meant to be loose and fluid it provides a fair bit of flexibility on sizing.
Construction The robe is fully reversible.
As with all of the Pavilion Parade pieces, the quality of the finish is paramount, with French and bound seams throughout (no overlocking) to ensure both a comfortable wear and a long life.
This piece is created from vintage 100% wool and silk saris. The design is very considered, with the cut engineered to make the best use of the various areas of beautiful printed design on the saris. I will spend some hours before cutting trying out different pattern layouts to ensure the most pleasing finished effect.
Care; These 100% wool and silk garments should be dry-cleaned only.
Sustainability Every time a custom order piece is purchased a donation is made via Ecologi to fund the planting of 10 trees and make a positive net contribution to combatting climate change. The trees are environmentally high value and part of gold standard schemes designed and managed to benefit local communities.
Packaging Dresses are dispatched in acid free tissue paper and recyclable cardboard boxes sealed with kraft paper eco tape. These are placed inside pouches for weather protection during transit which are made entirely from an environmentally friendly compostable bio-plastic created from sugar-cane.
