The dress is named "Thrive" to indicate the eagerness of the weavers to always learn something new in order to further hone their skills, prosper, flourish and overcome their tribulations.

 

The exceptional fit and flare dress is hand-woven with Tencel yarns which are are naturally dyed with earthy yellow( marigold flower) with olive green(mix of marigold flowers and 2% iron mordant) and red(madder roots). The dyes are applied on the yarns using a wooden block to create an “Ikat” effect while weaving. The dobby weaves results in an authentic textured fabric.
