Paradise-printed embroidered cotton kurta dress features traditional Lucknowi hand-embroidery in cream.

These beautiful dresses are handmade in India and feature delicate traditional Lucknowi hand-embroidery known as 'Chikkan' or 'shadow work'. The embroidery is done on the reverse side of the fabric to create 'shadows', and can take up to four weeks to complete.

Lucknowi embroidery is world-renowned, and many around the world flock to Lucknow to have their garments embroidered with this delicate craft particular to the region. Muzungu Sisters continues to value and champion artisans whose hand-embroidery is truly an art form and makes each of our Embroidered Silk Dresses a unique piece to treasure for years to come.

The organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment, with systems in place to replenish and sustain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilisers, and build biologically diverse agriculture. Our organic cotton is GMO free; cotton crops are not treated with pesticides, insecticides, herbicides.

Conventionally grown cotton uses more insecticides than any other crop in the world. These -pesticides and insecticides used in cotton production contaminate the soil we use to grow crops, the air we breathe and the water we drink. The deaths of animals exposed to these contaminants is counted in the millions every year. The damage caused to us and the environment by growing non-organic cotton is enormous and is a real threat to us and our planet.

MADE BY

Artisans from Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh, India

This garment is made by artisans in India. Muzungu Sisters continues to value and champion hand-embroidery, which is sadly a dying art due to the increase in popularity of machine-embroidery. The embroidery on these pieces has been done entirely by hand by talented women embroiderers in Lucknow and Mumbai, India.

The organic cotton is traditionally handwoven, and hand-loomed in one of the last remaining traditional mills of its kind in Tamil Nadu, South India, resurrecting ancient hand looming techniques unique to this region and empowering weavers to continue imparting their skills. The silks used are OEKO-tex certified.

Muzungu Sisters only uses natural sustainable, biodegradable materials that leave a minimal trace on our environment. Just as our pieces are designed to be kept for years to come, we believe in a conscious, conservative approach to consumption.
