Munu (Assamese) - a loving name for daughters, dedicated to the daughter of our manager Latika
This dress is part of our Munu-Collection.
This is the white version which was the original sample we made. It is almost the same as the others. It says size S inside, but is the same measurements as our size S/M. The majority of the pictures show the same dress in red to get an idea of the cut and details.
This dress is hand-spun and hand-woven by our team in Assam and sewn in a small studio in South Delhi. The silk is called eri silk and cultivated by Assamese tribal communities South West of Guwahati. It is a wild silk and the moth leaves a hole in the cocoon as it has to be empty before it can be processed. Therefore it has a structure which is rather similar to linen. No chemicals or pesticides have been used during the process. The dress has a relaxed fit which can be adjusted to fit women of size S and M, in the size S/M as well as the size L/XL, constructed for women wearing L or XL. The model wears size S/M. The dress has a tunnel belt, which allows the dress to be worn tight on the waist or loose. Also, the sleeves can be worn down, below the elbow, or rolled up once for a fit above the elbow. The dress features two pockets on the left and right side. It has small slits on the sides of the skirt which allows free movement. So comfortable, classic and made for every body type.
