Dyed naturally with the indigo plant and woven in lightweight khadi cotton, the Cross-Back Top is our closet staple. Finished with a wrap detail on back, the overlays create a subtle silhouette of elegance and edge. Tuck it into your favourite Sideswept Dhoti or wear it as is with any of our other pants. After all, it goes with everything.

100% lightweight khadi cotton, the threads are woven then dyed by hand with natural dyes. Colour variations may occur, as it is a part of its charm.
Handwash cold with mild detergent is preferred to maintain the colour and feel of this delicate fabric. For the first wash, keep it separate from your other garments. If you choose to machine wash, opt for a delicate wash with cold water and keep to light colours. Line dry inside-out under the sunlight. Iron your top on the lowest setting for gentle care.
I consulted the size chart religiously and looked for as many pictures and reviews as I could find to see how it looks on different body types before committing to the purchase. Unfortunately I ended up being utterly disappointed by the fit. My bust size is 36 so I ordered a size 2, which is supposed to accommodate a bust of up to 39.7, but it's ridiculously tight on me! I'm not tall (160cm) and lengthwise it's okay, but this is not the cute, flattering, goes-with-everything top I was expecting. I really love the cross-back detailing and the colour so I'm reluctant to part with it, but I might end up having to sell this.
