"Gusto" is the silhouette style named after the weavers’ enthusiasm and enjoyment while practicing the art of weaving.
 
This gracefully elegant dress is hand-woven with the interlacement of tencel yarns that are randomly tied and dyed to create an “ikat” effect. The yarns are naturally dyed with olive green(marigold flower with 2% Iron mordant), peacock green( mix of olive green and Indigo). Introducing single colour yarns at regular intervals creates a stripe effect on the garment.
