Ramilya 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.
Ramilya is a lovely quiet girl. When she is sewing she goes in her own dream world and sometimes you have to pull her out of it to explain next steps. She is very focused and her sewing skills are actually one of the best in the village.
Ramila used sewing machine to make this robe.

Overal Length: 50 in. Overal Width: 44 in.

Amazing flowing design of this piece with the emphasized borders/sleeves gives it a beautiful bohemian feel.

glorka is a cruelty-free & sweat-shop free ethical production.
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'.
