Avani ~ means the natural earth in Sanskrit.

Our Avani Dresses are inspired by our natural earth and the colours of my country Australia.

All made from natural dyes in natural breathable cotton by the hands of artisans in India.


 Inspired by that first Indian Gauze dress I found as a teenager in the 90s... I have continued to have an obsession with these pieces.



- divine floaty blouson sleeves.

- piping around yolk which sits under the bust line.

-  2 tassel ties with pretty jingle bells.

-  hidden side pockets, yes practical pockets!


Made from 100% cotton and only natural dyes.


A perfect trans-seasonal dress. These dresses will continue to soften with every wash and become more and more like your fave vintage indian gauze dress.


Hand block printed by our small team of artisans in Rajasthan, in a small community workshop. Our artisans pass their skills on through the generations, and unfortunatley this ancient technique is in jeopardy of phasing out, due to the skill needed, and world changes. These pieces are truly art and to be cherished forever.


Our ranges will never be mass produced.


Each dress comes lovingly packaged in its own matching tote bag.
