KUPU - Shirt Dress
From work to weekend, meet the dress you need all year round. Made with absolute comfort in mind, our Shirt Dress is meant to help you look effortlessly chic as you power through errands, change the world, or going to the local market. Wear open or closed with a removable fabric belt for additional versatility.
WHAT TO EXPECT
- A dress for any occasion. Day or night.
- So comfortable. We don't believe in beauty pains. Or sacrificing movement to wear something pretty. The side slits make it possible for you to run errands while looking amazing.
- You can still move. We are no fan of compromising. The side slits make it possible for you to still run - even bike!
- Flatters your body type. We hosted an Open Studio recently, and this is the style that gets complements the most! We think it's the flattering collar & the tie waist, but maybe it's how it makes you feel just great.

Tie waist, pockets, breathable fabric, exquisite natural colour, handcrafted, ethically made, and beautiful story – how can I not fall for this dress?
When I first saw this ruby colour, it fascinated me. It’s deep and warm. I wonder whether they will make this shirt dress with sleeves version, so I asked Gita. Good news, they could tailor one for me!
A month later the happiness package came to my house: Titik Shirt Dress with Sleeves in Ruby. The fabric is so soft and the colour, definitely, is lovely; gives you a sense of pleasant autumn.
On the postcard they sent there’s even the autograph of the artisan, Ibu Lisih. Thanks again, Ibu Lisih and Sukkhacitta. I’m delighted. Truly. :)
Beautiful dress that feels great, fits perfectly and is so very versatile. I love that it has sleeves, is wide enough for my hips and just looks great. Also, I am a fan of little details, so I loved to see who made it and how many people have been involved totally. Also: Plastic-free packaging gets five stars.
I am not a dress person, but this dress is very comfortable and the material is breathable. The description fits really well, I feel like I can wear it to work, but also to meet family and friends. It's really versatile. A happy customer!
I’m not thin so finding the right fit to somewhat conceal bulges is not an everyday thing - but this shirt dress looks really flattering even without the tie done and the fabric is irresistible it’s hard to say no. Love it!!
Only 2% of women who make your clothes earn a living wage. We're here to change that! Through your clothes, we're impacting over 1,282 lives in rural Indonesia.
It all starts with how it's made. That's why we use only natural fibres and traceable plants, preventing toxic chemicals from entering our rivers. Oh and we offer free repairs - for life!
For a Better Tomorrow
Your purchase funds craft schools in our villages and plants a tree through our reforestation programs. Because education is the key for long term change.

I hope that every time you wear your most meaningful clothes, it reminds you of the impact your choices are enabling in our villages and beyond.
Thank you for choosing change!
