Termite Tunnel over Red Wallaby and Goanna, Rock Painting, Dress

Regular price $56.00 Sale

This dress is cut from fabric custom-printed with scenes from a rock painting from Queensland, Australia, circa 2000-4000 years ago. A termite tunnel wends among paintings of a red wallaby and a goanna (monitor lizard).

To make the dress, the design is printed onto special paper, and then transferred onto the fabric using heat and pressure. This sublimation process creates a soft, breathable, vibrantly colored material – the pattern becomes part of the fabric, it doesn’t just sit on top of it.

Each dress is carefully cut and sewn, but with this stretchy fabric it's impossible to control exactly how patterns match up, or don't, across seams. Each dress is individual.

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