Pandora "Work and Days" Kota Doria Dress -Green With Beige and White Splatter

$180.00 SGD

This halter neck A-line handloom cotton 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!


CRAFT HERITAGE

Kota Doria takes it's name from a small town of Rajasthan in India, called Kota, where this specific style of weaving has been practised for generations. Doria itself means thread. The small squares on the fabric, is the most significant and unique feature of Kota Doria weaving.

This kind of fabric is traditionally block-printed in Rajasthan itself, but taking a departure from what is the norm, Santosh Kumar Dhanopia, fifth-generation, Indian award winning, master block printer developed this scatter print using non-toxic beige and white dye for Ayesha.
