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. Salina is handwoven with a contrasting yellow selvedge hem. The 3/4 length sleeves have pleats with beige and yellow stripe details and a button closure on the back.
