Cascade Vegan Silk Midi Dress
Assam is a land known for its teas, tribes and textiles. Tribal women in this Northeast Indian State exclusively hand wove our fair-trade-certified peace silk. In India, few see women weaving on handlooms. Our vegan silk supplier partners with an NGO that teaches Assamese tribal women new skills, creating economic opportunities and career paths historically reserved for men.
To make peace silk, silk moths must escape from the cocoon, and only after their exodus do silk farmers harvest the filament for textile weaving. Traditional or non-vegan silk requires that silk worms perish to unearth the cocoons from which silk is made.
This elegant and modest silhouette feels good in multiple seasons. We think it's perfect with a tall boot and a long chunky cardigan in the winter or in the prime of spring with a mule or sneakers. The weight of the silk works well in fall too.
We love the cascade raglan sleeve that ends right at the elbow, and the easiness in the sweep of the skirt at the hips and hem.
Hand wash cold and line dry, or dry clean.
