Early 20th Century Antique Aube Dresses in Indigo
These incredible Aube dresses were traditionally worn by French catholic priests in the early 1900s and are now an extremely rare find, especially in excellent condition.
We offer new unique models similar to the version featured here each month.
Each dress been delicately hand-dyed by indigo artisan, Atelier Simone in her Aix-en-Provence studio lending a patina effect to an already incredible piece of history, sourced in France dating as early as the late 1890s to early 1910.
The cotton fabric is incredibly soft each with hand-stitched gathered bodice with incredible detailing through m the neckline, complimented by a romantic hand-embroidered lace skirt and sleeve details, which are unique with each model.
Due to these pieces being over 100 year old antique pieces, there will be small imperfections that have been delicately repaired, adding even more character and history to each piece.
