Pale Teal and Ecru Stripe - Organic Cotton Kurta
*Colours may vary slightly based on the settings of the monitor used.
Material: Organic Cotton
This fabric is made from an indigenous variety of organically grown cotton in Vagad, Gujarat and is called by the same name. While conventional cotton production may be one of the largest water users among agricultural crops, Vagad does not require irrigation as the crop is purely rain-fed and is cultivated using dry farming techniques. Also known as Kala cotton, this textile is one of the few pure organic cotton species remaining in India. The short staple yarn spun from this cotton is dyed and woven by hand on traditional pit-looms, thus making it one of the most sustainable and sturdy textiles available in India today.
Colour: Pale Teal and Ecru
Details: This kurta feels soft and light against the skin. A hand-embroidered yoke in teal and amber accentuates its pastel berry hue. Pair it with our delicately embroidered cotton pants and throw on a sleek Bhujodi stole. Trust us; you’ll be the epitome of eco-fashion in this ensemble.
'The Other O' with its palette soft pastels and ecru; stripes and checks in varying measures and minimalistic peasant embroidery is a collection for the rustic sophisticate who can effortlessly blend old-world elegance with new-age consciousness.
