I read a lot about things being artisanal - and its always bitter sweet to me, as because its a fierce passion of mine and something I have worked the majority of my professional life towards, often times I find myself not believing what is written or claimed.
Sadly as I spend almost all of my time working on the creation of my own custom designs and their construction, I often find that means I have little to no time explaining what I feel artisanal really means, and how I apply that to my work. SO - I will try to work harder to share more and talk more about this going forward, starting with two of my latest and loveliest styles here - made from the most stunning Hand Block Printed Khadi. Entirely hand made, in limited quantities, and never re-stocked.
With two stunning styles, my Myra Dress and Aarti Top - using this most stunning fabric crafted over months and entirely hand loomed and hand block printed with all natural dyes. This process creates fabrics and prints of which no two are ever the same and each is entirely unique and special.
First up is my My Myra - showcasing the same amazing fabric into one of my best selling relaxed fitting knee length dresses, with a ruched detail at the square shape neckline, with ruffle details across the shoulders, as always with side pockets.
Partnered with this next is my Aarti Top - this versatile piece can be worn either as a dress or a top. With a yoke that is intricately tailored with pin tuck pleats, the hem is high in the front and low in the back with unique giving it the ability to be worn as a short dress or a long shirt, making it perfect to be paired with either your favourite jean or your best knee high boots.
Both are elegant and elevated, made in small batches and never re-stocked. I like to call them authentically sustainable.
