Kabir Shirt in Potai
Our Kabir (meaning, The Great) shirt is a classic button up shirt made for everyday wear. A wardrobe staple, its handwoven and naturally dyed fabric lends itself to a relaxed look and feel. We used a selvedge edge finish throughout which enhances its uniqueness and durability.
With a standard fit, an updated spread collar and hand-carved buttons. We used a selvedge edge finish throughout which enhances its uniqueness and durability. For selvedge lovers, this shirt is a real treat. From the outside, the shirt looks the same, but we re-engineered its interior to enhance the use of a selvedge finish throughout. Cleverly designed, the back pleat now highlights the selvedge as well as the inner cuff panels, button placket and side seam gussets. The subtle selvedge use and considered bone button hardware enhances the overall style.
MATERIALS + PROCESS
Produced using sustainable practices that help improve the livelihoods and welfare of our artisan community makers and reduce the impact on the environment.
Masterfully handwoven on a traditional foot pedal loom that creates a unique and unmatched texture from its hand-spun yarns. Its unique 'Potai' pattern is achieved using a technique that results in a brushed marble-like print. A paste is made of pomegranate peel, turmeric and sesame oil. The artisan applies the paste on the cloth using a piece of woven cloth using broad strokes. When the application is complete, the fabric is then dried and dipped in a solution to set the dye.
