BALEARES MAXI SKIRT SAND BANDHANI
The Baleares Tie Dye Maxi Skirt in Sand Bandhani is made of ultralight, ultrasoft silk crepe – so you float instead of walk. The drawstring waist may be the last word in comfort, but this skirt is also effortlessly chic. Spice up your summer with the addition of a tiny bandeau or our matching Baleares Tie Dye Crop Top. Carries you through winter with a woolly jumper and tights.
The Baleares sisters (tie top, crop top and skirt) are true free spirits who came to Ibiza and stayed. Gathering for evenings under the stars and picnics on the beach, the sisters meet to swim every morning in the turquoise cove they’ve been visiting since they were young.
The Baleares Tie Dye Skirt is the middle Baleares sister, the artist in the family, the dreamer. Most at home in her studio, bare foot and paint spattered. She lives by the Picasso quote, “the purpose of art is washing the dust off our souls.”
FABRIC + CARE
Bandhani, the first ever tie dye technique, originated in Rajasthan and Gujarat thousands of years ago. Bandhani – meaning “to bind or to tie” is the preserve of craftspeople who spend years perfecting their art. We work with traditional artisans in Jaipur (The Pink City), who learnt how to dye each piece by hand from their fathers and forefathers. We experimented with several tie dye designs – from tiny dots to large circles – before settling on this more minimal look.
This Sand boho maxi skirt is an ethereal pale gold that reminds us of the Moroccan desert in the early morning sun.
We made this boho skirt in silk crepe – light, lustrous and soft to the touch.
We recommend dry cleaning to give your skirt the very best care. Alternatively, hand wash it separately in cold water with a delicate detergent and hang dry.
Please avoid spraying perfume or deodorant on the Skirt. Keep out of direct sunlight to keep the colour strong and preserve the natural life of the silk crepe.
