Textile arts flourish in the rural villages of western India’s Thar Desert: Wide swaths of hand-block-printed fabrics are laid in the sun to dry. Women in Rajasthan create multicolored fabric mosaics using embroidery and appliqué. And artisans throughout the desert region practice bandhani, a deceptively simple tie-dyeing technique. Intricate patterns are created by wrapping the fabric with string before dyeing it. Bandhani cloth is often used for women’s shawls, but here the technique is adapted for a silky collection of travel-ready garments that drape beautifully and multiply your travel wardrobe.


Features 3/4-length sleeves. Medium is 39" long. Try adding our Black Bandhani Jacket for an extra layer in cooler weather.


Made in Jaipur, India. Viscose rayon. Women’s sizes S (4–6), M (8–10), L (12–14), XL (16–18).


Hand-wash.

          I'm wearing it at work, right now. I wore it because we are stopping for drinks after work and I wanted to look good. The dress is very comfortable, washed beautifully, and wrinles just drop out. Add a belt to define your waist.

            I ordered this because it was pretty, and different than just a black dress. I was surprised and very pleased with the fabric. It is very soft and lightweight. I do need to wear a half-slip with it, though. I'm very happy with the dress.

                        This dress is very lightweight but not so that it is see-through. It's great for warm weather in A/C offices. It hangs well, fits well, and is fun to accessorize with the bottom colors.

                        I wore this dress to a conference that was designated as business casual attire. This dress worked perfectly. It can be dressed up or worn with more casual accessories. It fits in luggage easily. I'm 6'1" so I would like another inch or two in length, but I knew that when I purchased the dress.

It's also the perfect length and glides over lumps and bumps making the most of anyone's figure. I highly recommend this dress and plan to buy everything made in this material. This dress would be perfect for the office or casual weekend and absolutely perfect for travel; just add some jewelery for evening. I will get so much wear from this dress. Thank you, Nat Geo!

                        Bandhani is a tie-dyeing technique practiced mainly in western India. Intricate patterns are created by wrapping the fabric with string before dyeing it. When the fabric is untied, natural patterns appear in the places where the string prevented the dye from taking hold. Bandhani cloth is often used for women’s shawls, but here the technique is adapted for a silky collection of travel-ready garments. Made of a black knit viscose rayon, these pieces drape beautifully. Sleeveless dress is 52" long from the center back.

                        Swollen feet and aching legs can happen to any traveler on long flights or long days of sightseeing. These socks help prevent that by using gradual compression to stimulate blood flow and reduce swelling. Athletes use similar compression gear to speed muscle recovery after strenuous workouts. Compression begins in the midfoot to help support your arch and gradually decreases toward the calf.

                        Follow the journey of a rebel named Black Wolf who breaks from his pack and survives to be one of the oldest wolves in Yellowstone. He'll travel paved roads most wolves avoid at all costs as he ventures out to mate with a rival pack's females. At nearly twice the age most wolves reach, Black Wolf's unorthodox lifestyle likely means he has more pups than any wolf in Yellowstone.

                        Block printing is a time-honored Indian textile tradition. Artisans use carved wooden blocks to stamp dye along lengths of fabric that are laid out to dry in the sun. Several intricate patterns combine in this lightweight, lightly quilted jacket that reverses to black with white dots. Features patch pockets on both sides.
