bathala terno dress
The limited-edition Bathala Terno Dress is inspired by pastoral paintings of women working the rice fields dressed in our traditional clothing.
We wanted to make kamisas and ternos for your daily life. We want you to wear this and be comfortable, feeling like you can tackle whatever the day requires.
Part of our collection called Simula, this dress tells some of the stories culled from the creation myths of the Philippines.
It is embroidered with a sun, symbol of Bathala.
Bathala is the Tagalogs' supreme god of creation. He inhabits the heavens and is the giver of life.
We are making only 7 of this dress. Each Bathala Terno Dress is numbered: 1/7, 2/7, 3/7, 4/7, 5/7, 6/7 or 7/7. We will not be making any more after the 7 runs out.
This is a free-size dress. There are drawstrings and ties to adjust fit.
It is made of black linen.
