A vibrant burst of geometry and color on mulberry silk made into a Kediya cut and hand stitched by a Rabari artisan in the traditional way. As pastoralists the Rabari woman was highly and widely skilled- from herding to maintaining a household on the move to making clothes and embroidery for the entire family. This kediya is filled with minute details typical of folk clothing- strings, pockets, tiny gathers and clever reinforcements. This iconic folk pattern is combined with a very contemporary textile in pursuit of new directions.
Care instructions : Gentle wash in cold water.
Each edition piece is made from scratch. It will be virtually the same but with the differences that come from human hands. Since colours are natural, they may vary sometimes because of season.
