this top is made of pinstriped 100% cotton handloomed fabric with gathered shoulders and a raw ruffle on the hem.
the "khadi" fabric is woven by women in rural central india. khadi means the yarns themselves are spun by hand, giving an organic and lofty feel. this fabric is made from the highest quality cotton to further add to the hand feel.
women are trained at this weaving center, and often learn the craft as an alternative to manual labor. their work is meaningful and the opportunity leads to a much better life for them and their families. we love that they receive onsite childcare while at work. this supplier also operates a hand loom school to excite youth about the art in an effort to revive this rapidly diminishing heritage craft.
