Our Russian Connection and a Renaissance Dress was Born

It was May, 2015 when Elaine approached us to purchase a Banarasi fabric. We chatted over the email and she informed us that she intended to use the fabric for a renaissance dress. There were some back and forth on the shipping and other details and the fabric was on its way to the USA. The fabric has now taken form of a beautiful dress.
