BE THE CHANGE DressRatna - Mata Dewi
Composition: 100% Viscose, plain or tie dyed by hand.
Wish it. Wear it. Become it. Live it.
Tie-dyed by hand, with love. This divine ‘Be the Change’ is designed to start the REVOLUTION inside YOURSELF! Every part of the day is important and when we get up in the morning, dressing is also part of that vibration. Now I ask you..what place are you dressing from inside yourself each day? Are you dressing to compete with other women because ultimately you feel a lack? Or are you dressing from expression of yourself as a divine human being and shining bright so that others may too? There’s no wrong or right..but my intention is that as women we love ourselves. We create the revolution inside ourselves to love ourselves and each other as sisters and stop competing and start believing and supporting one another. The way you dress in the morning is part of that vibration. Wish it. Wear it. Become it. Live it.
This dress is hand dyed in by skillful Balinese Artisans in Ubud, Bali. They work in a healthy and safe work environment with fair trade conditions and wages.
As each of our dresses are individually hand dyed, we have photographed our latest batch of Cream with Tie-dye dress. *Please refer to blonde model pictured in last photos of this color variant for the best idea on how this color looks.
