40's Print

The one thing we have always loved THE most about the 1940s is the fabulous prints! In the 1940s new technologies in printing and textiles spawned one of the greatest eras of prints. New bright and bold colors were now readily available, and artists took to their pens and brushes and came up with the most beautiful prints. The fabrics were soft as well as crisp and had a “cold” hand to them. Easily washed and ironed they quickly became a consumer favorite. Sadly though the chemicals used were so detrimental to the environment that they were outlawed and thus ceased production. Vintage collectors know this covetable rare textile from pajamas and swing dresses to men's collectable Hawaiians which now fetch thousands. Well we met an amazing woman who had been collecting deadstock fabrics for decades. She had the most marvelous collection, and we knew we had to make something special. So we went with our top selling Sagittarius slip dress, as it can be worn a multitude of ways. Allowing these rare fabrics to live as more than just one dress. In classic Morphew style, no scrap was too small, and we’ve utilized all of the fabrics in this fun print-blocked design. Another idea taken from the 40s and the famous “end of day” shirts where each pattern piece is a different fabric. We are excited to share these with you in hopes that this dress will finally get to live on over 70 years after it was printed.
