Local Finds

This is one of my favorite finds from vintage hunting. Interestingly enough, the fabric was printed in India but the garment was sold through the India Point Co. here in Providence, RI. I love when the vintage items I find are a remnant of the local area's history. The textile industry was big in southcoast area of New England (Madewell originated in New Bedford, MA!) and it is gratifying to see some of those items from their illustrious days survive.

Sunbleached Indian cotton dress can be found here.
