Inspired by the multifold drapes of the Indian dhoti, this version comes in crepe silk for a more luxurious look. Handprinted in the subtle Bottom Line Grey, this edition is easily transformed for a day at the office to light evening tipples.
Model is a US Size 2-4, wears Matter Size 1. 175 cm tall.
Wrap around the waist or hip for a snug final fit. Elegant and effortless, the gentle folds from the side pocket are balanced with side darts to give a skimming effect.
100% Indian crepe silk. Adapts to the climate, keeping warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Smooth surface resists dirt and odours.
Handwash cold with mild detergent is preferred to maintain the colour and feel of this delicate fabric. Leave to soak for a few minutes, then treat with a fabric conditioner in the final rinse to keep its feel. Rinse well in cold water and avoid wringing, keep to line dry inside-out, away from the sunlight. Otherwise, dry clean is another suitable alternative.
Comfy, stylish and oh so easy to dress up or down. I love these pants! I’m at uk6/8 and have no problems with size 1.
This is my first sideswept dhoti from Matter and my new favourite pants. I like it so much I ended up buying two more pairs in different materials shortly after. The fit seems to differ between the three I have - silk, organic cotton and handloom. This silk one drapes so beautifully and is one is so cooling and airy, perfect in Singapore's heat. To be honest, I didn't really like the colour and pattern at first, but I tried it on and was surprised as it is so flattering. It also has the most accommodating fit of the three I have. I wear a size 1 in all (usually size 25 or 26 in jeans) and for this, there is enough cloth to tie a knot at the waist and the fit is perfect everywhere, even at my thick calves. I will definitely buy more sideswept dhoti in the other silk patterns (:
I absolutely love these pants. I received so many compliments on them when I wore them! But the material is a lot thicker than I was expecting as the title said (silk). I also had the issue of a low droop in the crotch area, which I believe is how they are meant to look but my thighs rubbed together so bad and by the end of the day I was in a lot of pain. Either way, the pants are fabulous and I will find a solution to the thigh problem!
