EXAMPLE: TO ORDER 2.5 YARDS ENTER 5 IN THE QUANTITY BOX
Hand woven, hand printed and hand over dyed cotton from India. The base fabric is semi sheer with a woven in grid. The fabric is hand printed in the black leaf print, then over dyed a soft lavender tinged blue. The result is really beautiful with the hand dyeing adding depth as it does not take in some of the threads, and the sense of being hand done is present in the look and feel of the fabric. Light weight, semi sheer with some lingerie show through, smooth hand, lightly crisp drape. Will make a beautiful dress, shirt, tunic, skirt or top and will feel delicious on on a warm day.
Some of the most interesting and soulful fabrics are coming out of India today where textile traditions continue.I love working with my supplier, a woman, who is carrying on her family tradition in the fabric business. She lives in the US, goes back and forth to the factory in India, and is always coming up with new concepts, colors and designs for traditional Indian fabrics. The fabrics are made to order in India, and are shipped directly to us from there. These fabrics have a beauty and integrity that reflect the presence of the hands that made them. She keeps inviting me to come to India with her. Maybe one of these days!
Hand launder or wash gentle and air dry.
