How the robes are made

Our talented artisans use block-printing techniques to create the patterns: a traditional skill passed down through generations of Indian craftsmen. The designs are carved from hard wood by hand. This mould is coated with vegetable dye and hand-pressed on to lengths of soft cotton fabric.

This technique can create subtly different patterns with every length of cloth, so every dressing gown is unique.

The patterns are simple, bold and elegant. The light, breathable cotton makes the gowns incredibly comfortable to wear.

Our gowns are available in one-size: suitable for sizes  6-14 (USA) 38-46 (EU) 10-18 (UK). They measure 50" approx from top to bottom and 60" across.

Our stock is constantly evolving and the gowns are not only individually unique but each design is limited, so when you own a Susannah dressing gown, you own something truly special.

Due to the natural dyes used in the gowns, we advise washing on cold with a gentle spin.
