All our smocks are stitched by hand by the wonderfully talented women of Madagascar. Each design is a limited edition, a one of a kind creation, made in very limited numbers. Each edition marries an age-old treasure trove of decorative stitches with a rainbow of threads and fabrics, to create a unique expression of smocking artistry. Every Smock in a series is numbered by hand, in recognition of the maker and her unique stitching style. As a handmade item there may be tiny variations between pieces. We believe these human ‘fingerprints’ make each piece special. We hope you do too.
