Inspired by the multifold drapes of the Indian dhoti, this version comes in crepe silk for a more luxurious look. With the IChing print on calm yet sensous Jade, look chic and keep cool, even on a sunny beach day out.
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.
Lovely material, light and breezy for tropical weather but a little disappointed about the fit. I'm a US size 4 and even though I bought the smallest size, there was still a lot of excess fabric around the waist (and I'm not super skinny!) even though I experimented with the various styles of tying the pants. The rest of the pants fit fine though, so it's a bit of a pity!
I wore them to a friend's wedding, and everyone was asking where they were from and wanted to get a pair!
