krabi jamdani wrap

$ 356.00

we love a good wrap dress, so we couldn't help making our own. ours has pockets (!), a long sash and dramatic wide sleeve. the raw tucks along the back add a little bit of mirth.

this dress is made of soft & airy handwoven jamdani fabric which is woven in the homes of highly skilled weavers tiny villages in west bengal, outside of the city of kolkata. this is a special fabric native only to this region. weavers create the mitofs in the fabric using needle and thread while the fabric itself is being woven on the handloom. every part of the process takes place locally and without the aid of electricity. as the motifs are woven by sight, each one varies a bit and from weaver to weaver.

subtle bands in the fabric are the result of the varying humidity in the air and the hand-dyed yarn hanks. this is inherent in this kind of handwoven and are part of it's beauty. as a result, each top is unique and we think you'll wear it again and again.

size s/m can fit sizes 0 - 6. m/l fits 8 - 12.

take care with this handmade garment: was in cold water by hand using gentle detergent. air dry. light iron if needed.

made in india. comes packed in a pouch made with recycled fabric.
