A handwoven bodice with a graphic pattern tops our summery Alice dress. Featuring two generous pockets on the breezy skirt, shoulder straps that cross over in the back and a bow tie closure. This dress pairs just as well with sandals for a day in the sun as it does with heels for a night out. 

Made from reclaimed textiles in tonlé's unique zero waste process. The handwoven bodice on each dress will have subtle variations, highlighting the handmade character.

Materials + Care

This piece is carefully handwoven from small scraps of fabric as part of a unique, zero waste process – utilizing a combination of carefully hand-cut fabric yarns made from cutting room scraps. The custom-designed fabrics are carefully hand-woven in partnership with talented weavers in Cambodia’s Preah Vihear province in a fair trade workshop, and sent back to our Phnom Penh workshop for final sewing.

Each fabric is burn tested to assure that it is at least 90% natural, plant-based fiber. Please carefully hand-wash and lay flat to dry for best results. Because of the carefully handmade nature of this piece, it is as eco friendly as it is uniquely stylish. Each piece may vary slightly in color and texture, and we celebrate this.
