Each piece of clothing is fashioned from a traditional, handwoven fabric, either pure cotton or silk and displays its heritage and history in its fabric, color combination or border design.

Typical old world patterns are checks, stripes, and plains in earthy colors with borders like the gopuram, peacock, mango, rudraksh, annapaksham.

We source our fabrics directly from the weavers or local weavers cooperative at the village. With sarees, not more than 4-6 sarees are made in the same pattern and color combination.

By the time this reaches us, there are only one or two sarees of a kind, making each piece of clothing unique.

Cotton – The fabrics are sturdy, can be hand as well as machine washed. The fabric gets softer with repeated washing.
A mother’s or grandmother’s old saree was considered soft enough to not to irritate a new born’s delicate skin and was often used as a baby’s hanging cradle.
Silk – To be dry cleaned.
Our weavers tells us that they do not want their children to follow their profession. Undocumented and preserved only as skills passed from father to son, this 1000 plus years of weaving heritage is dying.
By fashioning these old world fabrics into dresses, we hope to preserve some of the culture and beauty of the past and make it relevant.
