Emile et Ida Blouse Flore
Blouse in ecru cotton printed with flowers in a shades of pink.
The flora pattern, exclusive to Emile and Ida, is executed in block print which is an Indian handcraft technique of printing with carved wooden blocks. Fabrics printed with block print age well but it is normal that the pattern loses a little of its intensity with each wash. This technique allows for a return to craftsmanship and the appreciation of the manual gesture. Manual means imperfection. We find indeed an irregular and imperfect side of the patterns, which also brings all the authenticity to the product.
The front and back yoke supports a gathered bodice. The round neckline and armholes are finished with ruffles. These are edged with a small picot stitch. This finish is made like an embroidery, forming tiny knots that separate the threads from the fabric. It is a meticulous work, which may therefore sometimes present some slight irregularities. The button placket is closed with buttons covered with fabric. A little tone-on-tone embroidery completes the look of this summer blouse.
