100% organic fair trade silk.
The organic, fair trade and cruelty free Indian silk is botanically hand-dyed in our studio and hand-pleated in a one-hundred-year-old family workshop. These unique artisanal techniques don’t require the use of any chemicals.
Each plissé is unique, with slight color variation, waves of pleating and flaws inherent to the hand dyeing and hand pleating process. We consider these artifacts of their production and proof of their authenticity.
Care InstructionsManufactring process
The pleating on silk is not permanent, in order to preserve it we recommend to keep away from water and suggest professional soft dry clean only. The pleating will evolve and soften over time as you wear it, in order to maintain it in its best condition, we advise to always store the garments gently rolled-up in its fabric pouch. Botanically dyed colors may fade if left in the sun, in order to preserve them we recommend storing the pieces in a dark place.
