Cut in the timeless box shape, the Jakardi Dress is crafted from a woven fabric which is produced on the dobby loom and characterised by small geometric patterns and extra texture in the cloth. The pattern created is a custom design exclusive to ELK. This classic style features a dropped shoulder, simple scoop neckline and a statement wide band hemline. The dobby fabric is sheer and lightweight, balanced with a separate removable cotton lining. This lightweight dress is textural in design with a roomy fit, making it perfect for warmer days. Pair with the Bremer Platform shoe for an elegant evening look or the Orpheus flat sandals for every day wear.
This garment was designed by the Elk team in Melbourne and handmade in China by a family owned and operated factory. Elk visits this manufacturer up to four times a year to assess working conditions, oversee garment construction and to source new materials.
