Sarc is an artisan group in Jaipur, India that has been established for more than 23 years. The group employs people in multiple villages and helps them build sustainable incomes for their families and their futures. By working within the community, this group helps each artisan with their personal goals, like sending their children to good schools.
This artisan group also helps preserve the practices and traditional skills found throughout the participating villages and gives those skills new life in each textile created. Each article of clothing this group creates is a unique work of art produced by the skilled handiwork of multiple artisans.
It really does take a village to contribute to each item’s beauty. Every step in the process—from making the fabric, stitching it together, adding embroidery, dyeing the fabric and applying any number of unique prints and designs—highlights the skills and beautiful traditions found throughout the 25+ villages involved.
I was so excited about this dress! Beautiful colors, nice and cool! The it arrived. The colors are beautiful and the length is good. I ordered a plus size since I've been working from home for over a year and may have put on my Covid-19 (lbs). I normally wear a size 12 and the clothes I wear still fit just fine. This dress was so tight at the arms and around my chest. I am a C cup so the issue is not my proportions. The dress made me look like I weigh much more than I do and I'm not even sure it could be remedied by wearing a sweater because it's just too tight across the top. Very disappointed because the colors are spectacular! If they had just created a way for the top to be more flexible, it would have looked great. It is folded in a drawer until I find a friend or family member who would like it.
When this dress went on sale recently I kept telling myself I didn't need another long, floaty, colorful dress.....until I gave in ;-)
Well, I just wore it for the first time today and it is every bit as comfortable and cool as it promised, and I got compliments from complete strangers :-)
The colors are vibrant, though happily not quite as bold as they seem on the screen - plenty bright enough though. The design, with the added panel in the skirt for extra flare makes it move beautifully. At 5'4" it is a tad long on me, so I had to be a bit careful when walking, but then again I was wearing flat sandals. With a touch of a heel I would probably be fine. So glad I gave in to this dress!
I love the looks of this dress, but one size does not fit most. I took a chance but it has very snug armholes. It's just a teensy bit uncomfortable. I can't return it, as I've already washed it. I'm going to pay more attention to one size fits most if there's a next time.
