Indian Patola Travel Shirt
Indian Patola Travel Shirt
(Based on 5 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Shirts

Patola is a form of double-ikat weaving, meaning that both the warp (vertical) and weft (horizontal) threads are dyed before being strung on the loom. This intricate process results in a bold pattern, often on a red background. It is practiced in many parts of Southeast Asia but is a particular specialty of Gujarat, where silk patola saris are often part of a bride’s trousseau.

Black Bandhani Shirt
Black Bandhani Shirt
(Based on 24 reviews)
Category: Member Products

Bandhani is a tie-dyeing technique practiced mainly in western India. Intricate patterns are created by wrapping the fabric with string before dyeing it. When the fabric is untied, natural patterns appear in the places where the string prevented the dye from taking hold. Bandhani cloth is often used for women’s shawls, but here the technique is adapted for a silky pair of travel-ready garments. Made of a black knit viscose rayon, these pieces drape beautifully and expand your travel wardrobe by working as separates or as a set. Made in Jaipur, India.

Textile arts flourish in the rural villages of western India’s Thar Desert: Wide swaths of hand-block-printed fabrics are laid in the sun to dry. Women in Rajasthan create multicolored fabric mosaics using embroidery and appliqué. And artisans throughout the desert region practice bandhani, a deceptively simple tie-dyeing technique. Intricate patterns are created by wrapping the fabric with string before dyeing it. Bandhani cloth is often used for women’s shawls, but here the technique is adapted for a silky collection of travel-ready garments that drape beautifully and multiply your travel wardrobe.

Silk Road Kurta
Silk Road Kurta
(Based on 7 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Shirts

The Silk Road through Southeast Asia to China transported more than just goods. Art and ideas also passed from region to region. Buddhism may have spread from India to China as early as the first century B.C., and on to Japan soon after. This Indian tunic, with a Japanese-inspired pattern, pays homage to the spirit of cross-cultural exchange.
