Poet Maxi Dress
The only of its kind
Our order of hand loomed fabric was distributed throughout an entire village in Southern India, roughly 100 homes worked on piecing the fabric for these garments together, providing employment and supporting the continuance of this tradition that holds an expected life-span of only 10-15 years. The Poet Series styles are destined to become vintage due to the rare exclusivity of hand-loomed fabrics in modern times.They are truly an ode to slow fashion, watch the video below to learn more...
Im 5ft 10 UK 10 and went for a Medium. Could potentially have also taken a Small as they are roomy but that's the style and I am very happy with the bluson look. So chic! The fabric is to die for- light and airy and so comfortable to wear. Ive already loved wearing this in the hot UK weather we've had lately with bare legs and sandals but cant wait for more autumnal weather where I'm gonna add boots and a chunky knit. So gorgeous Love all my DoI dresses and the fact you are helping to preserve such an ancient tradition and they are so sustainably made ❤️ Thank you xx
Subtle print, maximum comfort - chic!
This dress is absolutely divine on. It's a thicker DOI fabric than some of the other dresses I've ordered, but the plaid and long sleeves make this a good combination for the chillier days/times of year when you still want to be in a big flow dress. I got a small, it's true to size and I'm very happy with it. I wear it a lot, and will wear it long into the fall and likely even the winter with some layers underneath.
I believe in your commitment to fair wages and creating well-made, long-lasting products.
