Ronnie Short Kaftan
The Ronnie mini dress or short kaftan is named after Jean Marie's AMAZING father Ronald who goes by the name of Ron, except when being addressed by his siblings in England who still call him Ronnie. He is the hippest octogenarian we know just like this fabric which features a bold geometric splash of white concentric circles on a deep indigo background. The fabric has been created using the ancient dabu method of printing. In this method fabric begins as white, then a patterned block is dipped in mud and stamped onto the fabric. Next the entire piece is dipped in indigo dye, portions where the mud has been applied will resist color penetration leaving the unique white circles. Pieces are then washed several times to remove excess dyes and mud. Ronnie uses a very fine, lightweight, voile cotton that maintains its body while providing casual comfort with modern style. The Ronnie mini dress or short kaftan also comes in midi and maxi. Length is 30". One size fits all. 100% voile cotton, delicate machine wash or hand wash cold, hang dry. Indigo dye may rub or bleed on first wearing so it is recommend washing before first use. This fabric is block printed by hand, creating subtle variations in the pattern. Each piece is a unique work of art worthy of honor and celebration.
