Elly Abigail Dress - Teal Kintsugi

$59.00

DHWNABGDTK3Y

Abigail Dress - Teal Kintsugi is a new print and design from the Elly CNY2021 collection "One World, One Family". It has two-piece cross back with buttons. 

This print is inspired by the philosophy behind kintsugi, the Japanese art of fixing broken pottery by emphasizing, not hiding, the brokenness and to create something even more beautiful. We drew inspiration from the pottery creations - that use lacquer mixed with powdered gold to fill the cracks, to create our own fabric print. For our prints, we've incorporated Chinese New Year icons to join the cracks instead. 

Made from our soft breathable cotton so you can be comfortable wearing it all day.

About the art form of Kintsugi... 

Rather than rejoining pieces with a camouflaged adhesive, the Kintsugi technique employs a special tree sap lacquer dusted with powdered gold, silver or platinum. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of the object, revitalising it with a new look. (Source: Extracts from My Modern Met.)
