The Merriyen Dress is made from banana fibre fabric. Whilst banana plants are commonly mistaken for trees they are more akin to tulips, forming from a bulb. When bananas are harvested the stems are usually cut back and thrown away to make way for new growth. We repurpose the organic cellulose found in the stems to create a light weight fabric with a modern waffle texture.What a statement piece! Conditions Apply are one of Bonds favourite brands: Artisan made and respectfully traded using a remix of traditional skills and contemporary technology. Clothing is beautifully handcrafted & made with integrity, authenticity and transparency. Using sportswear fabrics alongside traditional techniques and processes to achieve pieces which would otherwise be impossible to mass produce due to its complex mix of processes, techniques and materials. It is a philosophy, a world view as well as an aesthetic which include asymmetry, austerity, intimacy and material’s innate nature.
