De- Threaded Shirt Linen Cotton

Made to order available in 8–10 weeks

The linen cotton mix shirt of Hydrouess’s dowry collection represents the history of the woman’s dowry in the areas of Greece and its islands. Each woman had a duty to complete a dowry before her marriage and one significant textile technique found in their embroideries was the cut stitch design that represented rivers.

This hand embroidered technique is used on the classic men’s-shape shirt, removing threads one by one from the weft of the material to create the ladder technique.
