Historically, ’smock’ was a traditional garment from the 19th century worn by English peasants, including boys. It is characterised by tight pleats on the front (and on the back), and embroidery. ’Smock is now a speciality of the embroideresses of the island of Madagascar.
Their craft was introduced by English missionaries. Each dress is unique as it is embroidered by hand. Our fabrics are 100% cotton and are carefully selected so as to offer a wide range of choice (patterns include flowers, Vichy, spots, plain, etc)
