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.

I bought all three of these dresses. They are light and airy. Wonderful in this hot weather around the house. Slightly see through, I am looking for pants made of the same material to wear under them. I made the mistake of ordering oversized fits most. I will have to reorder them in one size fits most. I have been buying from this particular store since 1999 I believe. Buying from fairtrade stores makes me feel like I have done something that benefits everyone. It's a good feeling. Thankyou for my beautiful dresses and tops.
This and another dress arrived today, earlier than expected which is a good thing because I fly out for a trip on the 20th and have to get the other dress's buttons redone. I usually do not do well buying clothes on line but I saw this and knew this would fit and be cool and comfortable. I have MS so in warmer weather need looser clothing and prefer long dresses, probably from my time in Hawaii, lol. I have just taken it out of the washer and it came out great! I used my delicate cycle and am now hanging it up to dry. This dress does not have a lot of shape, hangs down straight which covers the pooch I have. The colors are great (I usually don't wear blue) and because with the darkness of the dress if I wear dark underwear I am fine without a slip, hubby says he can see the outline of my legs but nothing else so the dress even has my husbands seal of approval! I am 5'3" and 150 pounds and the length is above my ankles. I would buy others if they were in other colors that don't have so much black, I like bright colors, yet I may just buy this color again I like the dress so much. The bottom of the dress is loose and would make a nice twirl if I was able to do one, lol. seriously it would work well for dancing or going for a walk. I rarely give 5 stars, more 4 than anything unless I am real unhappy but this dress deserves 5.
One is Not Enough!
I loved it at first sight. My Colours! My style! Wanted it so much, but didn't quite have the $. Took another week to scratch together enough dosh, and was So afraid it would be gone, but there it was, waiting for me. Then ~ O, No!It was lost in the post! I called immediately, they were quite nice, and a week later it was delivered. The wrapping was ragged but the dress was intact 🤗 I'm maybe 51½, very peary, and it fits a dream. It's just at my ankles, so doesn't drag the floor or trip me up. Wore it every day til I was told I had to wash. Didn't mind washing, but what could wear? Withdrawal. I have a few other clothes, but none I can LIVE in.... So, I've decided to forgo the processs of shopping for another couple dresses that'll just be ok, and I am buying this lovely garment again. I'm old, poor, and damagedXXX, and this dress pleases me immensly❣️❣️
What a great story! We are so glad you have found a dress to 'live in'! Enjoy it!
