Consciously created oversized organic.cotton shirt with hand embroidered Kasuti motifs that celebrates an ancient art form that dates back to the 6th century, native to North Karnataka 🌞

A product of Love - The Hometown Shirt is a celebration of our people, our women and our past stories🌻 The The shirt takes you through a journey of motifs very rooted to North Karnataka and The art of Kasuti 🌸 The embroidery was co-created with our women at Sakhi Saphalya, a non- profit that works in partnership with skilled women from neighbouring villages to empower them with the Kasuti craft  We also got to bring our love for hand-crafted jewellery into these very special pieces by collaborating with Bhavya Ramesh on one-of-a-kind brass buttons made into the mangoes and chillies, all the way from Jaipur, Rajasthan 🛖

We designed this shirt to be embraced by all keeping it gender-neutral and season-less🌻⛅️The fabric adapts to all weather types making it your favourite piece all through the year ☀️✨The garment naturally falls to appeal many body types Ana fabric to be kind to your skin with very little garment care needed🕊️ The fabric naturally stays creaseless, and always looking ready to be worn out 

The shirt tells the tales of Kasuti, using very traditional Kasuti motifs created by the women of the 6th century, that you will see with a name in English and Kannada throughout the garment 🧚🏾Embroidered using anchor threads in colours that bring a cheer to our hearts when worn ✨🌷 

We had to consciously create these pieces to enhance and uphold the unique individual quality each piece carries. Because it’s done by hand and how every artisan has her own story woven into what she stitches, which makes it a clothing to treasure 🌺🪡
