About the Dresses

The Open Road outfits are all hand sewn and hand smocked by women in India. These women come from poorer backgrounds and have been taught some skills, like sewing in order to make some extra money. Theses dresses are sourced from Mrs. Subhashini Raja of Baby’s Breath, who gives these women the patterns and fabric to make these dresses. They work from home and earn an income. This way they can continue to look after their children and home while making extra money to support their families.
