Kabir Shirt in Indigo Railroad Stripe
The Kabir 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.

Indigo dyeing is a special process that also requires extra care. Indigo bleeding is normal in naturally dyed garments and after several initial washes, the color will stabilize. Over time, the natural and graceful fading process results in a uniquely personalized piece. It is advisable to hand wash this garment separately and avoid exposure to direct sunlight as it could lead to premature fading.
