The Sarita dress is the perfect, easy-breezy dress. Made from cotton, the dress has a feminine look, featuring a u-shaped ruffle neck and ruffle hem adorned with hand-embroidered flowers in white. The model is 5’9" and is wearing a size small.
The Sarita Dress comes from the community of San Antonino Castillo Velasco. It is a community in Oaxaca that is known for its traditional floral hand embroidery, which dates back over 200 years.
These dresses can take over one month to make, and specialty pieces can take up to six months to complete. As each garment is entirely handmade, these pieces are one-of-a-kind works of art.
The designs are made by first stamping the pattern onto the chosen fabrics with ink using a large iron stamp. From there, the artisans use a small hoop to stretch the fabric and embroider the designs using selected threads.
These designs are part of these artisan communities‚ identities and heritage and are intended to last for generations.
Due to the intricate embroidery work, we recommend washing and drying on delicate settings, iron on low.
