Handmade Dresses Made for Special Days and Every Day
These handmade dresses for women are beautifully crafted in small quantities, mostly by artisans around the world. Ancient techniques like embroidery and crochet add one-of-a-kind touches to these pieces.

Many brands, like Sundress and British designer Juliet Dunn, turn to rural India to source skills for their handcrafted dresses. Artisans make up an essential part of the country's economy, and a vast network of expert artisans live in remote areas. A Juliet Dunn kaftan features eyelet detailing and rich embroidered patterns.

She Made Me, pictured, is an Australian brand that makes handmade crochet clothing in Bali, Indonesia. Some of the longer dresses take two weeks to craft and, as you can imagine, are made in limited numbers.

Another brand turning to Bali, Indonesia, for its skillful artisans, includes Tiare Hawaii. This brand also uses traditional dyeing techniques. Other brands turning to traditional artisanal dying include French brand Antik Batik and India-based label Banjanan.
