Handmade finighing is part of the essence of Ana de Jour's design. Beside the use of natural fibers, stylist Ana Paula Figueiredo incorporates delicate textures, handcrafted pleats as well as traditional brazilian needlework that give unique touches to each dress. Almost all of the production is on demand, done by seamstresses from low income commmunities, using buttons lined with fabric scraps and manual labour from embroiderers from

Paraiba state, in the northeast of the country.
