  • This is the first dress we ever designed, our #indigo #polkadot #blockprint dress. It's both classic and comfortable with an adjustable tie in the back. It's dyed using all natural indigo and stitched by #artisans in a #fairtrade workshop in northern #India. It's the epitome of #slowfashion as each process is both friendly to the earth and the people that make it.
