I first visited Bali when I was nineteen and loved the simplicity of the Indonesian way of life. Way back then the island was lush lallang, (long grass) and everyone commuted down the bumpy lanes to the beach by scooter or motorbike. It was then I first saw batik and have loved it ever since. I used to watch how it was made and was fascinated by its processing and loved the ladies adorned in their sarongs.
I first met Komang, our talented tailor about 5 years ago and knew he would be the right person to partner up with The Sarong Dresses. His tailoring business has two elements: firstly the simple family-run workshop we work closely with to create samples, and secondly the stay-at-home-mothers he employs who work from their homes on flexible hours giving them the opportunity to still care for their children.
The Sarong Dress is simple and the inverted A-line skirt is what makes it so flattering. Once tied and knotted, it drapes the skirt neatly around the waist and flatters the body. Of course having no buttons, zips or hooks it is adjustable every time you put it on.
Worn from the beach to lunch and even on to dinner, The Sarong Dress can be casually worn, dressed up with a sunhat or beads for lunch or for a formal affair, high heels and beautiful jewellery. Always flattering - always stylish!
