Dress in light cotton with a beautiful circle skirt that swings when you dance and drapes equally elegant when you stand still. Elegance and comfort in one dress.
The black and white motif in the fabric is created by coloring with the so-called Ikat technique. Cotton yarn is tied off with rubber bands in a specific pattern. The tied pieces of yarn remain undyed when the cotton strands are dyed. Then the yarn must be woven into fabric in the same pattern. An example of great ingenuity.
The dress is designed by Uma, fashion designer and founder of the clothing label Upasana. The design studio is located in Auroville, a special enclave near Pondicherry in South India. Auroville is a community where residents from all over the world have settled. There are 170 social enterprises that provide employment to more than 5000 people from villages in the area. Upasana is one of those social enterprises.
