Inspired by a vintage silhouette and crafted with handloom fabric ~ a rare and exclusive sustainably handmade textile in modern times. This flowing oversized maxi length design features sparkling gold lurex and white detailing on a deep sapphire blue baseclassic poet-style collar and optional tie, romantic billowy sleeves finished with soft elasticated cuffs, thigh high split on both sides and pockets at the hip.

Material ~ 100% Handloom Cotton.

The Poet Maxi is designed to be an oversized fit. If you prefer a more fitted style we recommend sizing down.

Garment Care ~ We recommend a gentle, cold water hand wash using natural detergents, and hang drying in the shade. Handcrafted garments are delicate, however, designed to last when treated mindfully with love and care.

Ethically handmade with love in India, The Poet Series serves to support local traditions and the preservation of the ancient artistry of handloom weaving.

Poet Maxi Dress

Color: Sapphire | Size

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...

Very amazing!!!!

I recently purchased the Poet Maxi Dress in Sapphire and I couldn't be happier with my purchase! The fit is perfect and very flattering, hugging my curves in all the right places. The material is high quality and feels luxurious against my skin. The color is absolutely stunning and the dress is even more beautiful in person. I've received so many compliments every time I wear it. Overall, I highly recommend this dress for anyone looking for a stylish and elegant option for any special occasion.

So comfortable yet classic

I recently wore my Nora Noir Maxi, to a 3 hour long theatre production, in hot and humid Sydney. Some people were more dressed up and some people were more dressed down, but I am sure that I was one of the most comfortable members of the audience!

Beautiful fabric! The slits are quite high on this dress

I returned this dress despite the beautiful fabric. Had intended to belt it but the slits are so high that belting it made the slits go as high as my crotch — then, it was more of a layering piece that I’d need to wear pants under….

I love this dress SO MUCH!!

I’m a big woman, I’m curvy and tall, with a large bust but this dress was the perfect fit in the arms and along the seam of the body, an absolute dream! I recommend you get this dress, you won’t regret it!! I bought the XL

I do love this dress! I’m using it as a dress but also cover up for my trip to Greece. I originally ordered the medium and it was HUGE on me. I’m about 5ft and 135lbs. On a whim I exchanged for the XS and it was still very big but I like it. I did wash it in the machine so it wouldn’t bleed later on and I actually didn’t need to shorten it which is surprising. Great quality!
