Our Marigold white dress is made of 100% linen featuring traditional Hungarian hand-embroidered floral motifs throughout the top and on straps.
This dress is hand-embroidered by a very talented 3rd generation embroiderers in the countryside, just outside of Budapest. The traditional embroidery, known as 'Maytó embroidery', is a free-hand embroidery technique in which women sketched and embroidered various floral motifs of their gardens into their clothing. Whilst the Matyo embroidery was at its height in 1800s, it has rapidly diminished by the 20th century.
Muzungu Sisters champion and value handcraft, and recognise the importance of preserving cultural and traditional art forms by supporting artisans whose skills are hard to come across nowadays.
