Item No. 162879
The pink-and-cream floral pattern of this navy cotton dress from Mata Traders tells a greater story beyond its short sleeves, pockets and A-line silhouette. This piece was crafted at a women’s cooperative in Mumbai, India, which generates fair-trade employment for over 700 people. The co-op is a self-sustaining, profit-generating business with on-site child care, a packed lunch service that employs women unable to sew, and a credit and savings group to encourage financial independence. Now that’s -exclusive style with a purpose.
