Kimono Sleeve Bandhani Shirt in Indigo
A beautiful and special all season banded collar shirt, made by hand using a variety of artisanal and environmentally friendly techniques preserved through family-run rural craft communities in India. Indigenous organic cotton is woven on a handloom then tie-dyed in 100% chemical-free, fructose-based fermentation using natural indigo to form a delicate bandhani pattern, reminiscent of pin dots. Water from the dye pots is then used to naturally fertilize crops in the community, along with other regenerative processes in this garment's production, that have been in place for centuries. Features a loose cut, buttons down the front, mid-length kimono sleeves, and small slit pockets at the front. Due to the handmade nature, natural variations in pattern and color will be present, making each garment unique. Comes with a special bag for delicate machine washing. Made ethically and sustainably, with zero waste, in India.
