The Rain Prayer dress has a loose straight cut and a simple shape that fits perfectly to any body type. Lightweight linen is complemented by various types of embroidery and handmade techniques, producing an elegant look. The main decorative element which adorns the body of the dress is a combination of different embroidery stitches. The wavy element is created with dense cotton thread and is accentuated by a contrasting blue hand stitch. Lurex thread creates a shimmering decorative element. The pattern on the sleeves and hem were designed by our artistic team and is reminiscent of traditional ethnic elements and symbols. For the embroidery, a varied combination of colors is used that harmonize perfectly against the linen fabric. The neckline and sleeves are lavishly hand-sewn with 24 carat gold plated beads.
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.

All processes combined take about 2 full days of work. Our embroidery patterns are made by artists, each motif tells a story, making each garment truly unique.
