Kabir Shirt in Leaf
Our Kabir (meaning, The Great) shirt is a classic button up shirt made for everyday wear. A wardrobe staple, its handwoven and naturally dyed fabric lends itself to a relaxed look and feel. We used a selvedge edge finish throughout which enhances its uniqueness and durability.
With a standard fit, an updated spread collar and hand-carved buttons. We used a selvedge edge finish throughout which enhances its uniqueness and durability. For selvedge lovers, this shirt is a real treat. From the outside, the shirt looks the same, but we re-engineered its interior to enhance the use of a selvedge finish throughout. Cleverly designed, the back pleat now highlights the selvedge as well as the inner cuff panels, button placket and side seam gussets. The subtle selvedge use and considered bone button hardware enhances the overall style.
MATERIALS + PROCESS
The Kora fabric was masterfully handwoven on a traditional foot pedal loom that creates a unique and unmatched texture. Its unique pattern is achieved using a unique type of printing with leaves. The multi-layered pattern is created using four different leaves printed in stages. Each leaf creates an impressive two hundred ink impressions. The process takes five days and one artisan creates three unique meters per day. Learn more here.
