Maxi/Dress and WabiSabi stole
KangriGheero is an ensemble designed as such that it follows the principle of minimum waste pattern making, It is a classic cut that adds to your conscious wardrobe; made of handwoven cotton fabric and is 100% handstitched. We want our artisan to enjoy working, and to be independent artist rather than just following designers' instructions. We we are taking this chance at Selvedge World Fair, 2020, by making artisans design their own products. We will share some profit with them on top of their daily wages which in the end will inspire them to explore more deigns. Sumi Ben and Jaya Ben are artisans who are cousins and each other's confidant. The duo came up with a design surface of irregular kangari (stripes of positive applique usually in triangle shape). We were so much thrilled to have such artisans who not only take participation in design process but also understands the aesthetic of the brand. The Maxi dress is paired with a wabi sabi stole that has surface of irregular fabric remnants. The ensemble is made for order but as it is completely handstitched and upcycled their will be slight variations in the terms of color and fabric from the one in picture and the one ordered.
