    Story Behind the Art:

     Bali has become Tomomi Takahashi's favorite place. After visiting Bali several times on vacation, she decided to move there in 2004. "Balinese people are friendly and always smile – that made it easy for me to get close to them. Also, they have a strong religion and great interest in art and culture," she explains. Tomomi speaks Bahasa Indonesia fluently. She lived in Vietnam for almost six months and worked in an interior décor shop before moving to Bali. There she was introduced to furniture and handicrafts from different places such as Africa, Indonesia, and Thailand.

    Tomomi was born in Tokyo, Japan, in 1975. She graduated from a Tokyo university with a major in art and design. "My childhood dream has guided me to create something different with my life," Tomomi says. Together with a Balinese friend, she designs and creates accessories made mostly of cow and goat leather, and also of cow bone. "A wild and fashionable idea," the artist notes. Through her designs, Tomomi perpetuates Balinese tradition and empowers women though training and providing jobs in a community environment.

      I bought this dress in brown. The color is not exactly like it is in the picture. I love the color. It is soft chocolate brown. Other than that, it looks the same as in the picture. I love this dress. It is versatile. It would look good with jeens and heels. Simple ethnic turquoise jewelry would look very good with it. It could also look good with flats, or with gladiator sandals. There are so many ways to wear this dress. The fabric is soft and stretchy, and the seams are all very well made. It is a very high quality dress. It is so simple but so flattering. It is not a cheap style dress. It is sophisticated in its simplicity. A really good addition to any wardrobe. People are so obssessed with buying designer clothes that they really miss out. This dress gives you a sophisticated and unique style of your own, and it looks like it's made with love. It doesn't look expensive but it makes you look very feminine and special.

    • So soft and comfortable!

      Option: M

      I love this dress. I'm a size 6, 5'2", and I ordered a M. For my specific measurements I should have ordered a size smaller because the waist tends to fall off my hips, but it's easily fixed. The color is exactly as pictured. The length of the skirt is on the short side.

    • Disapointed

      This is so comfortable, easy to wear, and flattering. I wasn't certain as I thought it might be too short and clingy, but it wears great.
