The Cotton Collection
Robust, Upcycled, One-of-a-kind, and all artisan-made pieces.
This collection is partly made out of up-cycled Ikat Cotton leftovers that we handpicked along our travels through India, our Ikat Cotton capsule collection is very easy to style and combine due to its soft colors. A must for everyone who loves all-natural and handcrafted fabrics. Ikat is a very time-consuming dyeing technique originating from Indonesia used to pattern textiles that employ resist dyeing on the yarns prior to dyeing and weaving the fabric. In ikat, the resist is formed by binding individual yarns or bundles of yarns with a tight wrapping method applied in the desired pattern. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7X8HTSTeKEs
Another craftmanship that we use in our Cotton Collection is Kantha. The fabric has been up-cycled out of cotton blankets that we handpicked along our travels through India.
Our Kantha designs are very easy to style and combine due to their soft colors. After we select the blankets they are decorated with a handicraft called Kantha which is a small straight running stitch that can be simple or multi-colored, all hand-stitched, and thus its typical irregular sequence.
Kantha is one of the oldest forms of embroidery, originated in India, and represents today a craft practiced by millions of South Asian women.
