Iris Dream | Caftan
We created this dress together with Savita.
Savita is one of the women from Katthiwada village in Madhya Pradesh, where we were living and working together this winter of 2019. We were sharing the knowledge with local women, connecting, laughing, and co-creating this beautiful collection.
Savita lost her parents when she was young but she hasn't lost an amazing positive attitude towards life. She has been coming to the sewing center organized by Ammachi Labs in the village every day to make sure everything is alright and all the supplies are at place. She loves to laugh and have a good time, yet when it comes to work and responsibility - she becomes the most reliable woman among the whole group.
Savita beautifully hand-stitched the neckline of this dress and used sewing machine for hemming and side seams.
Size: One size
Overal Length: 50 in.

Amazing flowing design of this dress with the emphasized borders/sleeves gives it a beautiful bohemian and airy feel.
We hand-make all the garments with love and care and we want them to bring you joy as long as possible! Please hand-wash this item. It's light and easy to hand-wash and to hang to dry.

This dress is a part of the project glorka and Ammachi Labs have been working together since 2018, empowering women to become more independent, self-reliant and simply happier...
Ammachi Labs is a part of humanitarian organization 'Embracing The World' founded by Amma, Mata Amritanandamayi. Ammachi Labs have been offering training programs to local women from various rural villages around India for many years now. The work they do is just incredible.
In 2018 we partnered up with Ammachi Labs, and together we have been coming to the villages to teach women how to make clothes. After spending some time on learning and practicing we then co-create collections of beautiful bohemian dresses. This year's collection is called 'Bohemian India'.
