Cotton Khadi Embroidered Dress
Lightweight cotton khadi dress with v-neck opening, tasselled ties and pintucks into back collar.
The sleeves are full and gathered at the cuffs.
The fabric for this dress is cotton khadi which, being hand woven
and hand spun, possess slight irregularities and subtle variations
in colour. The hand embroidery is carried out by skilled craftsmen
in India and thus varies slightly between each garment. The kaftan
neckline can be worn open or fastened with long tasselled ties.
Easy, straight cut dress in a yarn-dyed checked
linen. Grown-on capped shoulders with button
fastenings at either side. Pockets.
These pom pom blankets were hand woven by two cousins who
learnt to weave as children. They were taught by one of their
fathers who – now in his 90s – winds the bobbins. The wool is
from the Atlas mountains and is spun by local village women.
Hooded, traditionally cut djellaba in a weighty, supple, garment-dyed linen. The hood
and centre seams are piped and the front opening fastens with knotted buttons. Pockets.
The fabric for this jacket – a deep,
intense indigo blue – has been rope
dyed in Japan by a mill who we have
worked with closely over the years.
