Geeta Ikat Dress
made by our partners in rural rajasthan, the saheli women. our partnership facilitates employment for women in ethical fashion manufacturing to derive a sustainable livelihood that benefits themselves, their families and their communities. the Geeta dress features exaggerated balloon sleeves with elastic cuffs, square neckline, side slits and tie back to keep sleeves up. made from hand loomed cotton ikat, we love geeta for outdoor summer evenings, paired with simple flats.
