We created this dress together with Sonal.
Sonal 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.
Sonal is quite young, she is 29 and already has 3 children. The oldest one is 12 years old. She is a very kind hearted person and a beautiful loving mother.
She fully hand-stitched this dress. No sewing machine was used to make it.
Amazing, flowing and beautiful design of this dress with emphasized borders/sleeves gives it a great bohemian and airy feel.
The print on this dress is actually traditional for this part of India. You can see many women walking in different colored sarees and shawls with the same little-cute-dots style print!

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 Amritanandamaye. 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'.
