Amrita Freedom Shirt Dress -Monochrome Dots Ajrakh Blockprinted on Khadi
The Story Behind The Dress: The Freedom Dress has been Inspired by one of India’s greatest poets, Amrita Pritam. Her works mostly revolve around the turbulent times and theme of India’s partition, and the violence of the freedom struggle. She was considered to be the voice of feminism in the aftermath of India’s partition in 1947. In her long life and career, she wrote over 100 poems and shaped the future of literature for women. The women in Pritam’s characters were a reflection of how she lived her life - on her own terms, determined to unshackle herself from social norms and seize freedoms. The idea with this free size dress silhouette is to allow freedom from conventional sizing and structure.
Ajrakh is a centuries old blockprinting art form that originated in the Sindh province, making its way to India in the 16th century with the migration of the Khatri community. The Ajrakh fabrics for Ayesha have been developed by 10th-generation artisan Sufiyan Khatri.
The fabric is handwoven cotton known as Khadi.
