This sumptuously soft double-layered maxi dress has been one of our bestsellers consistently for 3 years and this year we have added a brand-new midnight blue colourway. Hand-embroidered by a women's co-operative outside Lucknow, using the traditional Chikankari style - no two dresses are the same.

Coined the 'cloud dress' - it is the perfect day dress to wear with a denim jacket and trainers, or sandals and bright accessories on holiday - she is truly a timeless wardrobe classic you will wear year after year.


    • This is a loose, voluminous fit so we suggest taking your true size, or one down if you want a more fitted style.


    • Hand embroidered by artisans in Lucknow using a traditional chikankari technique
    • 3/4 sleeves
    • Laced neckline with functional ties
    • Side-seam pockets
    • Double layered so non-see through
    • Super-soft 100% cotton
    • Wash at 30 degrees

      PLEASE NOTE: While all our pieces are pre-washed to avoid colour transfer the nature of the eco dyes we use may mean some transfer does occur. Please be aware when wearing with light-coloured clothing.
