Our black and grey maxi shawl is meticulously hand-embroidered with kantha stitch. The embroidery pattern recalls the structures of the Italian Rational Architecture or Architettura Razionalista movement which is the main inspiration behind the collection.
Kantha is a running stitch embroidery tradition from tradition from West Bengal, India and Bangladesh. The technique is also very similar to sashiko stitching from Japan, whose garment cuts’ tradition also inspired the collection’s silhouettes.
Made of 100% cotton, the shawl is hand-dyed and hand embroidered at Afterlife Projects, a Kolkata-based design studio with whom we partnered for the collection’s craft pieces. Each shawl is one-of-a-kind, therefore the embroidery’s thread color might slightly differ from the picture. The textile’s irregularities reflect the handmade nature of the entire process and are part of the shawl’s beauty.
