Merezhivo Dress in Black is made from linen. It has a loose fit and suits well girls of 6 to 10 years, for height 128-140 cm. Traditional Richelieu techniques make the dress sophisticated and elegant. Fuchsia + white handmade contrasting stitches are made around all black embroidery elements in the front panel and pockets. The neckline is lavishly hand-embellished with silver beads with 24k galvanized silver. The hem of the dress is decorated combining both hand stitches and embroidery using the Richelieu technique.
We have used high-quality linen fabrics and durable thick embroidery threads to craft this garment. At first, the parts of the garment are getting embroidered and then assembled together by our craftsmen in Kyiv at our own production atelier. Richelieu embroidery work takes 5 to 7 hours of our artisans' dedicated time per garment. There are 3 different artisans working hand in hand to craft the Merezhivo dress for you, each mastering the special type of embroidery, hand pleating, or sewing technique. All processes combined take about 1 full day of work. Our embroidery patterns are made by artists, each motif tells a story, making each garment truly unique.
