The Essentials Capsule is an edit of the best recognized and iconic signature Merlette styles in a timeless color palette of White, Light Beige, and Black, accentuated by a unique traditional Indigo Shibori print and some intricately embroidered handwork. For the capsule, Merlette commissioned UK-based award-winning textile artist Jane Callender, a specialist in indigo-dyed shibori, with a particular focus and interest in stitch resist. She was invited to contribute to the season's creative collaboration during the 2020 lockdown period. After pattern choices were made from a selection of designs, Jane went on to produce three original shibori works for Merlette, which were carefully translated into digital all-over prints on our signature Pima cotton lawn.
