‘Ode to Bali’

It is with so much Gratitude to Bali that I am able to offer this dress. This dress for me carries the essence of the beauty, free spirit and loving vibration of Bali and the Balinese people. Aptly, I have titled it the ‘Summer Wildling’ Dress. The open back is the main feature of this summer dress and the perfect combination of sexiness and sweetness.

The design is a traditional Balinese design, featuring the flowers of the Balinese daily offerings – the making and giving of the ‘banten’. It is a beautiful, repetitive and selfless act by the Balinese and their unique form of Hinduism. Part meditation, part short escape the buzzing world, It is offered 3 times daily as a gift of gratitude to the maker, and supplication to the lower spirits that they do not disturb the living.

We proudly produce our clothing under fair-trade working conditions. :)

This material is produced traditionally using the ancient batik screen print method. It takes 7 screens for 7 colors to hand print this material. Made by humans, not machines. You may experience some minor inconsistencies, which only confirm it’s hand-made process. This is part of our #slowfashion commitment to honor tradition and keep skilled artisans in jobs. It’s riskier and more expensive to make the material this way, but the romantic in me insists this is how it must be produced. Human and imperfect, the material carries the energy of all who have helped make it and that romance I believe transcends to the wearer.

Model in musk dress is a Australian size 6-8 and is 163 cm and wears an XS.
Model in Green Dress is a Australian size 8-10 and is 168cm and wears an XS (although for the shoot she wore an XS she would probably purchase a size small S)

Model in Violet Dress is Australian size 8-10 and 176cm tall. She wears a size S (she fits into both XS and S but S better fit for her due to her height).

We are not able to cover return postage at this time unless the item is deemed faulty. Return postage is reimbursed via PayPal or as store credit should items be deemed faulty.

Normal returns will be refunded in full minus the cost of any Bali customs charges (Please note that the percentage charged by customs on returns to Indonesia is quite high - around 30% - 45% of total cost of product. You may wish to carefully consider the price to return your item before returning. You can enter a value between $39 and $69 on items to attempt to avoid customs charges on your return package, however we are not customs and we cannot guarantee that entering a lower value will have any success in the amount you will be liable for in paying customs charges. All the custom charges are at the expense of the customer. So for instance, if you return an item to us that cost $379, if customs does not charge you for the return you can expect that we will refund you $379 - $35 for the original shipping cost from Bali and then prices your exchange If customs do locate your package and charge you you can expect to be refund roughly $379 - $35 - customs fees (25-35% cost of original item/s). Unfortunately there is nothing we can do about this which is why we try and make this information clear so you customers can carefully consider their purchase before buying from us and also before returning anything to us.

Once a customer returns a package to us, they cannot ask for the item to be returned to them if customs issues fees. The package will continue to be delivered to us. Again, the same applies as above. Even if the customer refuses to pay the customs fees issued by Indonesian customs our company will pay them and the customer will be refunded under the same terms as above. The customs fee and original shipping fee will be taken out for the item/s and the remainder refunded to the customer.
 Exchanges: In the event of items being exchanged it is the responsibility of the customer to pay for the return postage, any customs fees, and full postage of the exchange item back to them. Full postage for exchange items is charged at $35AUD. Any customs fees incurred into Indonesia when returning will be paid by the customer. Please note that the percentage charged by customs on returns to Indonesia is quite high - around 30% - 45% of total cost of product. You may wish to carefully consider the price to return your item before returning. You can enter a value between $39 and $69 on items to attempt to avoid customs charges on your return package, however we are not customs and we cannot guarantee that entering a lower value will have any success in the amount you will be liable for in paying customs charges. All the custom charges are at the expense of the customer. So for instance, if you return an item to us that cost $379, if customs does not charge you fees for the return you can expect that we will calculate your exchange at $379 and then the process with your exchange will continue where you will be charged $35 to post back to you your exchange item. If there is a difference in pricing for the exchange item you will be refunded or invoiced the difference. If Indonesian customs do locate your package and charge you you can expect to be refund roughly $379 - customs fees (25-35% cost of original item/s) and the exchange would be worked out from there. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do about this which is why we try and make this information clear so you customers can carefully consider their purchase before buying from us and also before returning anything to us.

Ode to bali

Unfortunately it was a little too tight on my hips. You guys were lovely and let me return but I decided to send it to my beautiful sister in Hawaii as a gift instead. She loves it!
