This dark green dress is made from an old type of cotton that has been cultivated for centuries on the dry soil in North-West India. The structure is airy and surprisingly different from the regular cotton you are used to.
The dress has small pleats from neck to just above the waist and is beautifully cut at the back. The dress drapes beautifully because of the pleats, has side pockets and a comfortable fit. A small coconut button in the neck finishes it off.
The small white dots, scattered like tiny snowflakes over the green fabric, are woven/knotted into the fabric by hand. It is a hand weaving technique that is regional. Only in Surendranagar in the Indian state of Gujarat is a weaving community that masters this technique. The dots are on the front and in the back of the fabric identical.
Kala cotton is a very old type of cotton that is native to the dry, salty desert region in the North West of Gujarat in India. The species is standard organically grown and grows purely on rainwater. The structure of Kala cotton is different from regular cotton, and Kala cotton can only be spun and woven by hand. Kala cotton is a very environmentally friendly and ethically responsible alternative to regular cotton.
