Stylish and sustainable, our cotton Balloon Dress is an easy-breezy outfit for everyday wear. It is crafted for women who love to look stylish, feel comfortable and want to make conscious fashion choices.
This handcrafted piece uses Mangalagiri cotton, traditionally belonging a town with the same name in the state of Andhra Pradesh. Handwoven sarees made from this fabric are well-renowned all over the country. We revive the cotton fabric that textile manufacturers discard and repurpose it into a line of apparel, which we now call it the Mangalagiri Cotton Collection.
Nothing beats the softness and comfort of pure indigenous cotton. We believe in the ‘anti-fit’ mantra, so you can ‘breathe easy’ in this cosy casual dress. The balloon dress has three-fourth sleeves that end in a similar colour shade for that contrast effect. We’ve added pockets on either side for you to carry your mobile phone or wallet and thereby helping you go hands-free. With an airy weave, this comfy maxi balloon dress is your perfect companion for any type of outing – be it for social gatherings with friends and family or for fun weekend getaways.
Since this is created by using the fabric from the manufacturing excess, this is a limited edition collection with limited colours and sizes options.

Upcycled Apparel Making Process:
Our Apparel Range is the piece de resistance of our entire Rimagined collection of products. We have dedicated much time and effort into our apparel creation process. Rimagined Apparel is created as Capsule Collections, containing a set number of items in particular sizes; no more, no less. The reason behind this is our entire apparel creation process is entirely different than that of mainstream fashion houses.
We procure our raw material first, which is textile scrap from boutiques and industries that do not meet their length requirements to process through their machines. Once we collect and assess the various pieces of cloth, we then create our designs based on our assessment. A lot of energy is poured into the conceptualization of our Apparel range. Working mainly with natural fabric such as cotton and linen, we ensure that our designs are as efficient as they are fashionable because we strive to maintain our low waste process. All of our designs follow a strict anti-fit concept, as much as the material allows, so entire range showcases the truly easy breezy, light feel of natural fabrics, as compared to synthetic counterparts.
The upcycled clothing pieces we create are often one of a kind, as there is a limited amount of material to be upcycled into say, a beautiful cotton dress design or colourful cotton tops and supple cotton stoles. When you invest in the Rimagined apparel range, you will be guaranteed expertly handcrafted, unique clothing that can be your go-to statement piece in your closet.
