Gala Kimono | Nile
- SIZE & FIT
Laid across on a translucent crêpe-like material made purely out of locally grown cotton, Nile illustrates a calming yet powerful state of constant, endless flow of natural stream in estuaries, where the tide meets the current. This kimono is an exclusive addition to our limited epicene batik collection – Stilleben.
Intricately hand-drawn with a traditional technique of wax-resist dyeing, this hand-dyed kimono is a unique painting work in collaboration with Mas Ta, our natural batik hand-painter. Working together in his atelier with the local collective of his village in Central Java, no motif is ever the same and no person will be receiving a carbon copy. This is the nature and process of our traditional hand painted batik, a beautiful creation that holds not only a tradition, but also the story of the makers.
Model is 175cm/5'7' and wears a size OS. Featured with elbow length sleeves, belt loops on both sides and two frontal patch pockets, this versatile kimono with a straight cut is tailored to an oversized unisex fit with airy feel, allowing you play around with the shape. Measurement for reference / Waist: 140cm / sleeve length: 60cm / garment length: 105cm.
