A composed repeat of lines in their parallel, this motif was created by Srinath, our master weaver who taught us the intricate ropes of ikat. Named after the village he calls home, the Koya motif is our tribute to him and his story.
Model is a US Size 4-6, wears Matter Size 2. 187cm tall.
Broad neckline allows for ease of wear, just step in and pull it up. Four-button closure keeps it adjustable, along with a two-button option along the tapered cuffs. Finished with pleated details for a subtle silhouette.
100% medium weight cotton. Selectively bundled and dyed by hand with azo-free dyes, the threads are then handloomed. Colour and weaving variations may occur, as it is a part of its charm.
Wash separately the first few washes to prevent colour runs. After that, machine wash with similar colours. For best results, handwash cold or use delicate machine wash. Do not tumble dry. Line dry inside-out. Cool iron inside-out.
I bought this jumpsuit assuming the cut and fit would be like the one I had bought before in a different design. However, it seems looser all over, especially in the shoulder/ neck area. It doesn’t hang as well as my previous jumpsuit, which is comfy but not too loose. Fitting aside, I made the mistake of getting this delivered to Thailand. I was charged S$80 in duties and customs, which of course isn’t Matter’s fault, but if I had known that it would incur anywhere near 40% of the retail price, I would have had it shipped somewhere else. Displaying an estimate of duties & customs would be helpful for future purchases.
I packed my two All Day Jumpsuits for a four-day trip and they were suitable with sandals during day for sightseeing and chic during the evening for a dinner cruise with a shoe change. The color is muted that it doesn’t attract a lot of attention but unique with the need for a second glimpse.
Although I think this is a quality product, I needed to have the top altered for a better fit. Almost an inch was taken in the shoulders to prevent slipping and the showing of my bra straps and about two inches in the back so it wasn’t billowy.
