One of the first dresses we designed -- literally meant to pop on and get you dancing.
The idea to dip dye it in a neutral shade (instead of the brights that are often used) came from our experiments with dyeing many of our original samples with tea. The earthy tones and the natural undyed cotton fabric at the bottom of the dress tells the colour story of a cotton boll - the portion of a cotton plant that produces the fibre, which is then plucked and processed into yarn, which serve as the colour inspiration for the neutral palette used in our debut collection.
