Ethically made in Jaipur, India.
For this batik collection we collaborated with a small atelier in Jaipur. Working with family and friends in a cooperative society, they make sure everyone has enough work within their own discipline to sustain their families’ livelihoods.
This blouse takes around 2,5 hours to finish: from cutting the pattern, to sewing the pieces together, creating the ruffles and attaching the buttons, and finishing by ironing and packing for transport.
With a zero-waste policy, we asked our partner to make scrunchies from the fabric scraps. If you select the scrunchie via the dropdown, we will add a matching hairpiece for you!
