Metta - Kaia Dress - French Ticking Stripe

Colour: Sooty Overdye

3 pieces in stock

A minimal and oversized dress, the Kaia featuring soft gathered details along the back yoke, an elegant mandarin collar, sewn in cuff, and handy pockets. With a full button front, the Kaia can be worn buttoned, half-buttoned or styled open over other layers as a practical and elegant layering piece during all seasons. Available in one size, the Kaia is an oversized fit with a beautiful drape.


This season we have released our Kaia Dress in a limited edition Black Check, Ticking Stripe and autumnal overdyes. Ticking Stripe was originally known as ‘ticking fabric’ and made from thickly woven cotton or linen. ‘Ticking’ comes from the Greek word ‘theka’, which means ‘case’ or ‘covering’ as this delightful fabric was used in the home to cover mattresses, keeping straw and feathers in nicely. We fell in love with this timeless stripe many years ago, and love to incorporate it into our collections.
