seville top in white + poppy
our MIRTH loyalists love a swingy top that hits just above the hips, so we brought back this shape in our latest super soft jamdani fabric.
jamdani is a special form of handloom weaving, known for its "light as air" feel. it 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, or "buti," 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 varies weaver to weaver. your purchase is helping keep this dying jamdani craft alive and gives crucial work to weavers and their families.
take care when cleaning this fabric. always wash in cold water with a gentle detergent (no bleach!). it will air dry nicely. warm iron if needed. our friends in india say to just soak in cold water, no soap, and air dry. we leave it to you!
