Sona Bawaliyo by RaasLeela Textile (INDIA)
Maxi/Dress/kurta with Multi Purpose Accessory
Sona Bawaliyo is an ensemble designed as such that it follows the principle of minimum waste pattern making, It is a classic cut that adds to your conscious wardrobe; made of handwoven cotton fabric and is 100% handstitched. We want our artisan to enjoy working, and to be independent artist rather than just following designers' instructions. We we are taking this chance at Selvedge World Fair, 2020, by making artisans design their own products. We will share some profit with them on top of their daily wages which in the end will inspire them to explore more deigns. Sona Ben is our most enthusiastic artisan she specializes in mirror work and rabari bharat which also known as bawaliyo stitch. When this opportunity came, she wanted to do a design with only bawaliyo stitich as its surface preferably on ekpc as it is her favourite silhouette. And thus Sona Bawaliyo was designed. It is paired with a multipurpose accessory "Boriya Hansdi" made of fabric remnants. It can be worn as a neckpiece, as a bracelet or as a hair accessory tied on a hairbun or ponytail. The ensemble is made for order but as it is completely handstitched and upcycled their will be slight variations in the terms of color and fabric from the one in picture and the one ordered.
