Style & Stories / THE GOLDEN HOUR


Toast Kantha Gowns and Washed Linen Nighties, worn by the women at Sisterhood Camp in Devon. A group of like-mindedwomen who, for one weekend, camped beneath the stars, sharing skills and learning new crafts. Xanthe Berkeley took these photos, just as the sun was setting.

Our Kantha embroidered gowns are made from recycled saris by an Indian cooperative. Each gown is unique, made as they are from a selection of recycled saris of varied pattern and colour. Dropped shoulder, easy, long sleeves. Fastens with a fixed tie to one side. Two patch pockets.

The sky crisp and blue, the air with a slight chill, the land golden.


Barefoot we walk, hair in the breeze, wildflowers in handfuls.


Coat tails spin, warm colours aplenty, textures thick and floating linen whipping in the wind.

 Trees, grass and the distant sound of waves.


The golden hour.
