TRY IT WITH:

Airy, crisp, and a joy to wear, khadi weaves were popularized in their native India as a way for people to achieve self-sufficiency under British rule. To this day, this artisanal fabric is made all over India, and we're proud to be able to offer it here!
With a fine, hand-woven finish, this khadi cotton chambray is crisp, easy-to-sew, and pleasantly rustic to the touch. As it is hand-spun, there are subtle variations in the surface. Its light and breezy feel mean it'd make a lovely tunic, a sharp summer button-down, or even a pair of summer pyjamas. Fully-opaque, it doesn't require a lining.

Always pretreat fabric before sewing to remove chemical sizing from the manufacturing process. Pre-washing also gives you a better sense of the true drape and handfeel of a fabric. We recommend washing and drying fabric in the same way you intend to wash your finished garment. Be sure to separate brights and colours, as some dyes and prints may run the first few times you wash them.

It’s important to wash and dry cotton to remove any potential shrinkage down the road. Machine wash in warm water and tumble dry on medium or hot. More delicate cottons like voile, double gauze or embroidered cottons should be washed by hand or on the delicate cycle. Use a hot iron when pressing.
