We create garments from unique luxurious textiles, using only manual labor – from step one to the final stitch on a ready to wear piece. We use natural fabrics that are completely free from harmful chemicals and safe for human use.
Our fabrics such as handwoven and hand dyed silk ikat and silk suzani hand embroideries are the jewels among the textiles with no analogues, not to mention the unique patterns and drawings that cannot be repeated or printed on factory machines.
With proper care our garments will serve you for many years and will delight the next generations. Hand crafted from the rarest complex precious textiles, their cost will only grow which is why we consider them to be modern art objects and textile masterpieces.
Our ikat fabrics are handmade from natural organic cotton and silk, the threads are hand dyed with natural dyes. This makes a unique material with natural imperfections, which are considered not flaws but the marks of human hands, master’s signature.
Here are some special features of fabrics woven and dyed by hand:
- the shade may vary, this is due to the fact that natural dyes are used for coloring (such as flowers, turmeric, pomegranate, indigo, walnut shells, logwood, eucalyptus, cochineal etc.)
- dense threads that can look like hooks
- minor color differences or coal paint traces
Silk and cotton woven by hand have minor imperfections, with connections of longitudinal and transverse threads visible on the surface.
All our garments require careful treatment and care. We recommend DRY CLEAN ONLY for them to delight you for many years to come. We recommend to avoid using water, detergents containing chemicals and bleaches to preserve the shape, color and superior quality.
Do not wash or dry in the washing machine.
