Dress Mon I


mon (Assamese) - mind

This dress is part of our Mon-Collection, which is available in three different colors: burgundy (dyed with lac), beige stripes (dyed with the leaves of the teak tree) and in natural cream color. The 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 and is available in sizes S - M - L - XL. The model wears size M. The fabric is soft and an inner dress is added for the dress in white in order to avoid transparency.
