Empowering Indian Women With These Dresses

Upon her arrival, the mother of princesses Catharina-Amalia, Alexia and Ariane appeared in a long night blue dress decorated with embroidery combining this color with white, red and yellow. An ethnic but also ethical and united dress branded by the Zazi brand, created in 2017 by the young Dutchwoman Jeanne Zizi Margot de Kroon based in Berlin. On her Instagram account, she said that the dress that the Queen of the Netherlands was wearing was made by a woman named Leela, from the Indian town of Bhikamkor. Which works for her through Saheli Women, a non-profit social enterprise whose objective is to financially empower women in this village in rural Rajasthan, some 100 km from Jodhpur. An objective that can only please Maxima, who is very committed to the economic empowerment of women around the world, as a special representative to the United Nations Secretary General for inclusive finance.

On the Zazi website, we learn, moreover, that this dress combines “vintage embroidery” handmade by women of the Lakai tribe – from Tajikistan – with “a 100% recycled Khadi fabric which has been over-dyed to obtain the shades of ‘an indigo midnight sky during the full autumn moon’. “The Lakai embroidery patterns were a form of creative self-expression by Lakai women – a physical manifestation of the sacred shamanic rituals practiced by them to provide protection,” he added.
