Lotto Carpet, Dress

Regular price $56.00 Sale

As featured in Top Deals to Purchase in 2017. This dress is cut from fabric custom-printed with a late 16th-century Lotto carpet motif, most likely from Turkey. Carpets with yellow arabesques on a red background are known as "Lotto" carpets, referring to The Alms of St. Anthony, a 1542 painting by Lorenzo Lotto that features this style of carpet.

To create this dress, the design is printed onto special paper, and then transferred using heat and pressure to become part of the fabric. This sublimation process creates a soft, breathable, vibrantly colored material.

The dress is super-comfortable, made of a smooth 82% polyester/18% spandex microfiber yarn with four-way stretch. Printed, cut, and sewn in USA.
