This halter neck A-line handloom Ikat dress with an accompanying handmade ombre necklace is the workhorse in every woman's wardrobe. The straight and un-fussy silhouette that can take you from school runs, brunch catch-ups, work meetings to casual date nights. And of course, it has pockets.

The Story Behind The Dress : Inspired by Hesoid's Work and Days epic poem, the character of Pandora symbolises womankind and the jar of hope that she holds on to is what humanity strives for. While there are many interpretations of Pandora in the original poem, the one I prefer is that woman who represent's the the catalyst for organised society, one with a civilising influence! And boy, does she have to work all day to achieve that - hence the tongue-in-cheek name - The Pandora Work and Days Dress!


Ikat is a dyeing technique used to weave patterns into textiles. It uses a technique called resist dyeing, where threads are tied and dyed before weaving. One of the most noticeable and unique attributes of surrounding an Ikat pattern is the blurriness in the design. It can also be considered to be a global design movement that spans across the centuries and originated in Asia. The word “ikat” has Indonesian and Malay roots, roughly translating to mean “tie and bind”.

The handloom Ikat fabrics sourced by Ayesha originate from the weaving cluster of Telangana, India. This design has been woven by multi-generational master weaver, Yadagiri Gajam from Puttapakka, Telangana.
