Samira Tunic Dress in Potai
The Samira (meaning, Wind) tunic dress has soft gathers and billowy sleeves to push up for volume or pulled down for less. Its mandarin collar frames the neckline for buttoning up or leaving open. Style as you please –– push up the elasticized sleeves for more volume or pull down for less and wear loose or belt.
Produced using sustainable practices that help improve the livelihoods and welfare of our artisan community makers and reduce the impact on the environment.
Masterfully handwoven on a traditional foot pedal loom that creates a unique and unmatched texture. Its hand-spun yarns are naturally dyed by hand at a family-run workshop using natural minerals and plants.
Its unique 'potai' pattern is achieved using a technique that results in a brushed marble-like print. A paste is made of pomegranate peel, turmeric and sesame oil. The artisan applies the paste on the cloth using a piece of woven cloth using broad strokes. When the application is complete, the fabric is then dried and dipped in a solution to set the dye.
