Sarc is an artisan group in Jaipur, India that has been established for more than 23 years. The group employs people in multiple villages and helps them build sustainable incomes for their families and their futures. By working within the community, this group helps each artisan with their personal goals, like sending their children to good schools.
This artisan group also helps preserve the practices and traditional skills found throughout the participating villages and gives those skills new life in each textile created. Each article of clothing this group creates is a unique work of art produced by the skilled handiwork of multiple artisans.
It really does take a village to contribute to each item’s beauty. Every step in the process—from making the fabric, stitching it together, adding embroidery, dyeing the fabric and applying any number of unique prints and designs—highlights the skills and beautiful traditions found throughout the 25+ villages involved.
I purchased this same dress in turquoise. I'm here to tell ya -- it's a great dress, comfortable, near-ankle length (depending on your height), versatile (think long cardigan over it in cooler months), and lovely. Both the other comments left for this dress do not seem to apply to it. It has a vertical pattern (not horizontal) and it is NOT short). I think the reviews have been attached to the wrong item.
Awesome dress for summer or bathing suit cover up. Light with horizontal design which I love about it.
Barely knee length. Pattern on back is different than the front.
