Common wisdom says opposites attract, and that rings true with this beautifully contrasting checked handwoven cotton. Its midweight heft and rustic yet soft hand are perfect for any everyday use, but its crisp drape really lends it to shirting applications. This artisanal fabric has been handspun and handwoven on traditional looms by skilled artisans using azo-free dyed cotton yarn. We see it transformed into any application where you want a touch of crisp cotton structure - think collared shirts, shirtdresses, and eye-catching trousers. Fully opaque, it does not require a lining.

Please note that any order over 5 yards may come in multiple cuts, due to the handwoven nature of the fabric.

Artisanal

Ethically Handspun & Handwoven In India

Masterfully produced by skilled artisans on traditional handlooms in India, this handcrafted textile was made using natural fibres and finished using azo-free dyes. For more than 30 years, our supplier has been sourcing high-quality handspun cotton yarn called Khadi, which is then traditionally weaved by artisans in a family-oriented homeworking environment. With its ethical sourcing and fair supply chain management, our supplier has had a positive impact on the traditional weaving community and the environment, through job creation, artisan empowerment, water conservation and a reduced carbon footprint.

Care Instructions

Wash

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.

Long-Term Care

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.

Fabric Tips

Use a hot iron when pressing.
