Unisex Children’s Gown
This unisex gown follows a traditional Tibetan folk pattern, adapted to a child's size. It is made from a densely warm yak khullu and silk blend and is fastened at the chest with a twisted, black and white khullu cord. It features a piped-edge high collar, French seamed interior, and side-seam godets for easy layering and movement. Its cuffs can be turned up or down, allowing for continued wear as a child grows.
The khullu used to make this dress is an exceptionally rare fibre, as only one in every thousand yak possesses a white coat.
This item is currently available in size M, while sizes S and L are made to order. Please see the size guide to find your correct size.
We produce limited numbers of each style to keep our manufacturing processes sustainable and to avoid overproduction. As every Norlha item is created and finished by hand by our small team of artisans, please allow two extra weeks when ordering made-to-order items.
