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.
This lightweight, comfortable high waist dress ticks off all the right boxes especially for a summer wedding or party. It has wide, modest straps, a skirt roomy enough for dancing, and pockets big enough for car keys and cell phone. Which means you can also wear it to the supermarket.
first let me say this..... I am in love with the dress! I had to take off 1 star as I am going to have to go have the buttons fixed, there are 2 huge gaps in the chest area. If you had dark underwear on you would be able to see them but hubby said with the color I had on he couldn't see them. He could see the shadow of my legs which neither of us mind as long as you can't see the underwear or above them. I have MS and the heat causes me some issues so this dress is great at not being too clingy so will help me stay cool. I am 5'3" and it is just a tad long but I can just wear a higher pair of sandals and it will be perfect, that or it may shrink enough so I don't have to worry about the length. The material is softer than some other of the other dresses I have bought from here. The pockets are the best., but romantic flow of the skirt is the topping on the cake. I weigh 150 and a medium is a good fit except of course for the gaps in the top. A large would have been to big under the arms and in the shoulders.
