    Beautiful socially and environmentally aware clothes. Created by an association of artisans, seamstresses and embroiderers who work in team with designers Sandra Maria and Sonia Reis to make environmentally conscious garments.

  • This dress is going to make you change your mind about tie-dye. The bold red makes this tasteful tie-dyed silk/cotton dress a work of art. Wear it long like a maxi dress and connect with your inner mod-hippie. Wear it short, made possible via an intricate under the skirt system…and bubbly and show off those legs. A girl needs options. Either way, you’re going to get asked where you got this dress.

    I LOVE this entire collection! From the artists: "I translate fabrics into soft and romantic silhouettes, using natural fabrics like silks and cottons, which are kind to the skin. Distressing fabrics and alchemically treating them, gives the feeling of already ‘being loved’, thus evoking emotion. Even one-off fabrics found in flea markets can be given new life. Richly embellished fabrics echo Eastern influences, and I have great respect for their traditions. Inspiration can be found from the past – re-using vintage textiles and sometimes creating replicas of them, incorporated with specific craftsmanship."
