Inspired by a vintage silhouette and crafted with handloom fabric ~ a rare and exclusive sustainably handmade textile in modern times.

Offering a warm red clay colour-way contrasted with classic off-white tones, this intentionally oversized mini length design features a poet-style collar with optional tie, romantic billowy sleeves finished with soft elasticated cuffs and pockets at the hip. 

Material ~ 100% Handloom Cotton. 

The Poet Mini 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 Mini Dress

Color: Red Clay | 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...

I’m 120lbs and 5’7 and got a size small. It’s oversized but still so cute. I tried it with a belt and it looks even better

Love this dress!

I purchased this dress in both the red clay and taupe colors, and I was quite a bit nervous for so long to try Daughters of India dresses due to the price.. but my goodness I LOVE these dresses! I can see these being a part of my wardrobe forever and styling them for all seasons. Definitely recommend if you are on the fence or nervous to try due to the price - they are quality and very much worth the investment :)
