MATERIALS + PROCESS
Ladakh’s mountainous terrain presents a multitude of textures and shades of beige. Due to its high altitude there is limited flora and fauna. Many of the valleys of the region are surrounded by various tribes. Peppered against the vast Ladakhi terrain are homes in similar color tones. Our neutral tones reference Ladakh’s varying shades of beige.
Woven with Kala Cotton, the short staple and indegnious cotton native to kutch. Our cotton fabric features a unique diamond structure and has been dyed using Natural Indigo dye. This fabric is known to protect the wearer against the harsh heat in Kutch while keeping the wearer warm in the winter months.

Produced in a limited run with exclusive handcrafted fabrics. Due to the nature of the print, each piece is unique. 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.
We recommend hand washing in cold water using natural detergents and drying in the shade. Handcrafted garments are designed to last when treated with care.
