This dress is cut from fabric custom-printed with a cermonial mantle textile motif from the Andean Paracas culture circa 100 BC–100 AD.
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.
