The pattern for each dress is laid out on the fabric then the dress pieces are cut out. This is meticulous and important work!

Our dresses are sewn by small Fair Trade sewing groups in Cambodia and India. The women and men who make our dresses are paid a fair wage, work reasonable hours, and are respected talented professionals.

Some of our dresses are dyed using flowers and other materials reclaimed from temples in India. Each panel of fabric is hand tied and dyed with the small-batch, organic natural dyes. It is almost like there are blessings in the very fibers of our dyed dresses. You can learn more about our eco and Fair Trade practices here.
