Textiles & Quality

FABRICS

In most products, we use textiles that are handwoven with Ambar Charkha spun cotton yarn. For few collections, we also work with handwoven fabric with mill-made yarn. The details would be mentioned in the product page.  

Though our textiles are pre-shrunk, one should keep room for 2% shrinkage while fitting/buying.

Handwoven cotton fabrics become softer with every wash.

The handwoven fabrics’ imperfections are a proof of its handcrafted origin.

  

COLOURS

Most of our textiles involve dyeing the yarn before weaving. Few are dyed at fabric or apparel stage. 

We often use natural dyes for printing & dyeing. Some natural dyed products may fade over a period of time or bleed slightly. Natural dyes will have muted tones and minor shade variation.

We also use Azo free chemical dyes and pigments for printing & dyeing with responsible disposal of treated waste. We make conscious efforts to minimize use of water & chemicals in our processes.

  

PRINTS

We use direct block prints and resist dye techniques with wooden blocks. We have also worked with Tie & dye method in traditional Lehariya patterns and modern Shibori.

The print might have slight irregularities in the motif & colours which results from the human involvement in the process.
