This indigo and white ombre jacket has been crafted from a single handwoven, tie-dye Kutch shawl. This jacket has vintage hand embroidered patch attached to the collar and comes with 3/4th sleeves.
The length of the jacket is 28 inches.
This shawl takes approximately 2-3 days to weave and is woven from wool yarns. After being woven on a handloom the fabric is hand tied and dyed with an ombre effect. The entire process is done by hand without the use of any machinery and can take weeks to create.
This shawl has been sourced from Bhujodi Village in Bhuj, Gujarat where nomadic tribes hand weave shawls and blankets for their community. The "Vankars" are the weavers of Kutch who travelled from Rajasthan centuries ago picking up and spreading weaving and embroidery traditions along the way. This village is also known as the village of weavers because of the settlers and the songs of warp meeting weft that linger in the air.
