Inspired by a vintage silhouette, and crafted with handloom fabric ~ a rare and exclusive sustainably handmade textile in modern times. This intentionally oversized maxi length design in Taupe features a poet-style collar with optional tie, romantic billowy sleeves finished with soft elasticated cuffs, thigh high split on both sides, and pockets at the hip.

Material ~ 100% Handloom Cotton. 

The Poet Maxi is designed to be an oversized fit. If you prefer a more fitted style we recommend sizing down.

Garment Care ~ We recommend a gentle, cold water hand wash using natural detergents, and hang drying in the shade. Handcrafted garments are delicate, however, designed to last when treated mindfully with love and care.

Ethically handmade with love in India, The Poet Series serves to support local traditions and the preservation of the ancient artistry of handloom weaving.

Color: Taupe | Size

The only of its kind

Our order of hand loomed fabric was distributed throughout an entire village in Southern India, roughly 100 homes worked on piecing the fabric for these garments together, providing employment and supporting the continuance of this tradition that holds an expected life-span of only 10-15 years. The Poet Series styles are destined to become vintage due to the rare exclusivity of hand-loomed fabrics in modern times.

They are truly an ode to slow fashion, watch the video below to learn more...

Lovely dress

Beautiful quality, a thicker material. I should have size down I think. I’m a size 14-16 and went for the XL but due to the over size nature of the design a L would have been great on my body shape. Love it though. And will be buying from DOI again

Gorgeous but FYI…

I have both the Taupe and Clay dresses and although the website says they are made from the same material, the taupe dress is super thick (too hot for me to wear during Summer) while the clay dress is SUPER flowy and light (which I prefer!). They’re both gorgeous and I get so many compliments wearing them, but they really feel like completely different materials. The taupe dress is also a lot darker than it looks in the photos.
