Shoba 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 shoba dress features a back zipper, puffed and cuffed short sleeves, and an obi wrap belt. made from hand loomed cotton ikat, we love shoba paired with a sneaker or flat for warm summer afternoons and evenings.
