Valkyrie Systre

Special ordered silk dress.
It is inspired by the traditional handmade dresses that after colonialization and a violent history has become custom to the Herero people that lives in regions in Namibia and Botswana.
The dress is made in handmade fair trade silk ordered from Albott in Denmark.
Albert Albott offers great service and has great textiles. They are very beautiful. If anyone gets tempted to sew garments from his textiles, feel free to contact me, as it is not a very easy textile to use, but absolutely worth the effort still. 
The fabric is shinier than normal silk, and has a great rude and irregular texture.
The dressdesign is composed by at least 180 pieces. I used at least 1000 meter of sewinthread.
