This supple skirt is handwoven from undyed sheep's wool, sourced from herds of sheep in Rajasthan. The sheep are herded by shepherds who lead a nomadic existence.

Sheep flocks in the desert

Unlike sheep in Europe, these sheep mainly graze leaves from shrubs and trees in the Thar desert. The sheep belong to the original, native Indian species Magra and Nali.

Maintain traditional way of shepherds

For as long as shepherds have been tending these sheep, they have had weaving communities weave large scarves from the wool. These scarves measuring approximately 2.50 meters by 1.50 meters will keep the shepherds warm during the cold nights in the desert. The size of these scarves is just right to make clothes out of them. This is exactly what Via India is doing in collaboration with the Indian slow fashion label Cotton Rack.</p >

Responsibly produced wool

Today the traditional way of life of the shepherds is under threat. A non-profit foundation helps the herders by buying wool from them, having it weaved by local hand weavers and marketing it. We buy the wool from this foundation.

Silk and cotton lining

The lining of the skirt is a thin fabric of silk and cotton. The print is a so-called Dabu print. In this technique, patterns are created with a natural clay paste that adheres to the fabric when it is dyed. The undyed areas form the pattern on the fabric. This is the same principle as batik.

The skirt is trimmed with a strip of two colors of wool: brown and black. Black is also a natural color. With the complementary sweater where the same stripes are repeated, you have a beautiful set!
