Combining effortless elegance with classic feminine lines, the raw silk Zen dress is at ease amongst palm trees or worn for evening dinner. Refined spaghetti straps fall into an alluring scoop neck at the front and adjoining racer back, conveying both delicacy and strength in equal balance.
A risen hem at the front stops just above the knee, draping into a butterfly hem with strong angles accentuating leg length at the rear. The Zen dress is truly a practical solution to beach days transitioning to big nights with the ladies. The embodiment of refined comfort.
Fashioned from the finest raw silk sourced in North India’s Varanasi city on the banks of the Ganges, this cool, light dress is an essential summer purchase; ideally paired with a FARA Silk Scarf once the sun goes down and the city lights come up.

Designing clothes for the nomad at heart; FARA chooses handcrafted fabrics and a conscious cut. Made for floating along a sun setting beach, dancing like nobody's watching or venturing far and wide. Rachel and Fumie met in Goa and over many cups of masala chai discovered how much their stories and inspirations reflected each other. Sharing tales of London fashion institutes, global wanderlust and motorbiking around India; soon they shared new visions – being nomadic mamas bringing up their children in India and creating a new conscious clothing label.
Their fluid designs were born out of their daydreaming of far-flung places, flowing silks and Japanese watercolours. Their inspiration comes from the beautiful natural fabrics that have been handcrafted in India for centuries – raw silk, hemp and traditional dying and weaving processes. Meeting the families of the artisan weavers in Varanasi and learning the trade that has been passed down for generations. Fara Boutique only works with sustainable and natural fabrics - silk and hemp are two of the most eco friendly materials in the fashion industry (both use no pesticides in cultivation, very little water, and are incredibly renewable).
Inspired by the future generation, Fumie and Rachel forged their company around sustainability and fair trade.
