Composed entirely of straight lines, the simple elegance of this motif derives from its namesake Cave 17, also known as the Library Cave. Reinterpreted in the modern craft of batik screen printing, our artisan partners started this as a means to make the craft sustainable in the long-term while keeping the integrity of the human elements in its process.
We’ve taken the Midi Shirt Dress and made some edits based on feedback from our #mattertribe community: a longer silhouette with slit details and an optional belt for wrapping. Of course, we’ve kept the things you loved too: button closures that are breast-feeding friendly, and pockets for the everyday.
Zoya fits a US Size 4, she is 172cm tall and wears Matter Size 1.
Accented with a maxi length and slit details for easy movement, mandarin collar for sophistication in comfort, optional belt for wrapping, and pockets of course. Change up your look with its full sleeves cuffed up or simply folded in to suit your every day.
100% medium weight linen. Dyed and painted by hand, and batik screen printed. Colour and weaving variations may occur, as it is a part of its charm.
Hand wash cold with mild detergent is preferred to maintain the colour and soften the feel of this delicate fabric. For the first wash, keep it separate from your other garments. If you choose to machine wash, opt for a delicate wash with cold water and keep to like colours. Line dry inside-out under the sunlight. Iron your dress on the linen setting for gentle care.
