Natural dye is a craft that keeps alive a tradition dating back to thousands of years. For the love of the colours, this shirt was natural dyed with the indigo plant.
Handspun and handwoven in khadi cotton, Mahatma Gandhi saw this material as a symbol of Indian textile heritage. He would encourage people across India to spin their own yarn, to go back to the roots of their heritage with pride while supporting the Khadi industry. It is a fabric that embodies a worldview of the past as well as of the future.
100% lightweight khadi cotton, the threads are woven and dyed by hand with natural dyes. Colour variations may occur, as it is a part of its charm.
Hand wash 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.
Great fabric for tropical weather. Fits is great for both myself and my boyfriend. Win win! Sleeves are a tad long on me but I always roll them up. Great shirt overall and gorgeous indigo color.
