"Nothing beats loose, pure cotton in Summer. I wear this dress all the time when it's hot; out with friends, barefoot at the beach, grocery shopping, you name it. The light cotton fabric and loose casual design lends itself to most Summer scenarios I find myself in. The pockets are handy, and the short sleeve (but not capped!) keeps you cool while hiding the flabby top of arm area - perfect all around!" - Mel, co-founder
Head straight from the beach to balmy Summer evenings out in our new Aurora dress. With a loose, comfortable fit and two side pockets (!), you will reach for this dress time and time again. The cotton fabric softens beautifully after washing, and the small 'dot' embroidered detail on the neckline and the hem is our Surya point of difference on a classic design.

Love my Aurora Dress!
I purchased my lovely Aurora Dress-Embroidered in wine, small. The feel of the cotton fabric is fabulously soft and fresh! I also love the pockets and the fabric belt! The size is very generous, I'm glad I ordered it in small. It is a bit see-through so I wore a slip dress underneath. Looking forward to wearing it time and time again! Thank you Surya for creating timeless, beautiful, ethical clothing! You're my fav!
Nice summer dress
This Aurora dress in navy colour is a very nice casual dress. I also wore it as an evening dress as it is dark navy. I love the material as it is nice cotton and great for summer.
Aurora Dress embroidered
Love dusty grey colour with lovely embroidery around neck & bottom of dress . Three great colours to choose from . Great to throw over swimmers.
We've been working with Shanti for over 6 years now, and are in awe of her natural dying techniques and abilities. Shanti and her team hand dye our hemp scarves, shawls and selected clothing pieces using plant based dyes from the Earth in their small village.
We are proud to support and promote Shanti's small, family based business of natural dying.
We support a number of different charities in Nepal, but the one closest to our hearts is Street Dog Care in Kathmandu. This beautiful NGO offers a wide range of care for those in the city that have no one looking out for them - our homeless four legged friends.
We have teamed up with Andrea and the team to help eradicate the insidious mange present in most street dogs. You can help by purchasing a felt 'Good Boi' puppy dog and we will donate $10 toward purchasing the medication to treat these beautiful pooches.

★★★★★Tori G, on Juanita Jumpsuit (Full Length)
"This is my dream item! I have one in both green and red and love them both! I have alternated between them every day since owning them. They’re such a nice fabric, and can cater for a range of sizes using the different buttons (fits me a size 8 and my sister who is size 12). The postage was quick and the items came with a personalised note.Thank you Mel for your beautiful creation!I will definitely be buying more : )"
★★★★★Barb S, on Sirena Pinafore
"Absolutely love it. It’s exactly what I hoped it would be the fabric is soft and even nicer after a wash. And the colour is lovely looks great with a white tee shirt. Couldn’t fault the service it arrived a few days after I ordered it and I live in the country. So yes I would certainly recommend this product."
★★★★★Mellissa, on Clementine Top Herringbone
"Well made and quality fabric. This top is a lovely, unique design. It's an unusual, but quality fabric and it's obviously well made so it's worth the price. I'm normally a size 12 with a little bit of a tummy so I ordered the size Large and it's just right, glad I didn't order the Medium as it would have been too snug for my liking. Highly recommended."
★★★★★Natasha L, on Tibetan Wrap Dress
"This dress is phenomenal. The material is of quality, the colour is
beautiful. It can easily be dressed up and down. I intended to wear this
to a wedding but I'll also be wearing it day to day with a cute pair of
sandals. This dress is fabulous for different seasons too."
★★★★★Hannah F, on Tribal Organic Cotton Yoga Top
"I received the cotton singlet as a gift and wore it all the time, it’s
the perfect layer for underneath other tops in summer, and will
sometimes come to yoga with me! I’ve since bought two more and wear one every day. They are a staple in my wardrobe and I will keep buying them as long as they are available. "
