Designed by the amazing, Sriparna, in Kolkata. This beautiful dress is handmade by her network of local artisans from traditional Bengali taant fabric.
Taant begins with yarn handspun from local West Bengal cotton, and Sriparna designs her own jamdani motifs that are painstakingly included as the fabric is woven. Taant is the softest, lightest fabric you can wear; perfect for those long hot summers.
This easy fit dress comes with a patched checkered short yoke, pinch gathers around the base of the collar, and tassle tie-ups along the neckline. The collar is detailed with threadwork. The uneven tiled canvas of the jamdani fabric carries within it the intricately woven art in jamdani, including intricate lotus motifs. The balloon sleeves have inverted pleats and gathers in a lovely purple diamond jamdani buti fabric. And roomy pockets for extra comfort.
An easy breezy dress, meant to be worn loose. It doesn’t come with an attached lining. We love to wear it extra oversized for extra comfort!
