Red Apple Orchard Cynthia Dress by Palava
The Cynthia dress has a mandarin collar that can be styled both up or down, three-quarter length sleeves, a belted waist, pockets, and a full skirt. This dress was made by Satnam and his team in Palava's little London factory. There is a side zip and functioning buttons at the bodice.
Made from 100% Organic Cotton. The cloth is woven and printed especially for Palava in Turkey. Natural and biodegradable. Oeko-Tex certified dyes are used as well as corozo nut buttons.
Corozo nut buttons are an ethical, sustainable and biodegradable alternative to plastic. A favorite choice in the 1920s.
About the Print: An orchard is an area of land on which fruit trees are grown. The UK has 2500 varieties of apple alone. October 21st is Apple Day in the UK and was intended to be both a celebration and a demonstration of the variety we are in danger of losing, not simply in apples, but in the richness and diversity of landscape, ecology and culture too. It has also played a part in raising awareness in the provenance and traceability of food.
