Megha Agarwal of Studio Maeve uses 100% “KHADI” cotton in her designs. The cotton is planted, picked and slivered by hand. It is then spun on a wooden wheel “charkha” and woven on a traditional hand loom. The art of weaving (Jamdani), originated in Bengal and is estimated to be more than 2,000 years old. On manual looms, weavers integrate in the weft with a needle, a floral or geometric pattern point by point. This artform requires the most lengthy and dedicated work from the artisan. Handloom natural dyed fabrics are naturally low in toxins - unlike many modern fabrics. They also have a tiny carbon footprint as it is made without electricity or emissions. Natural dye will fade slowly and gradually with use, which will become your own unique color. Piku has a loose fit with gathers on the neck and sleeves.
