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.
When this dress went on sale recently I kept telling myself I didn't need another long, floaty, colorful dress.....until I gave in ;-)
Well, I just wore it for the first time today and it is every bit as comfortable and cool as it promised, and I got compliments from complete strangers :-)
The colors are vibrant, though happily not quite as bold as they seem on the screen - plenty bright enough though. The design, with the added panel in the skirt for extra flare makes it move beautifully. At 5'4" it is a tad long on me, so I had to be a bit careful when walking, but then again I was wearing flat sandals. With a touch of a heel I would probably be fine. So glad I gave in to this dress!
