This silk dress was crafted as a wearable tribute to Lord Indra and his court of gods. It was pleated like a fan and then stitched with intricate patterns, before being hand-dyed in the rich tones of our natural indigo.
The best part of creating this garment is the uncertainty of what it will look like once we open it up. After all the multifaceted folding and stitching, we unfold the garment eagerly to reveal the delicate yet vivid patterns it holds.

Dyeing with natural colours involves letting nature take its course. The shades are a product of the dye, water’s composition, dyebath’s pH, mordants, type of fabric and weather conditions. This means no two fabrics will have the exact same colours.
That’s why we urge you to cherish this piece – coloured using pieces from this Earth and all the tiny imperfections it holds.
