Crafted from a single length of fabric, our signature Dune Robes are designed to showcase our beautiful textiles. In this style, we use kantha - a centuries-old tradition of stitching patchwork cloth from rags which evolved from the thrift of rural women in the Bengali region of the sub-continent.
To create this robe, wild tussar silk cocoons are gathered from jungles in West Bengal. The cocoons are cleaned, carded, hand spun and hand woven on wooden looms located in the weaver's houses.
The family business we work with buys this fabric in the local market and distributes it amongst the 700 women they employ to stitch the kantha. The kantha is hand-stitched by women whose families have been stitching kantha for generations. To create the fabric used in this robe, it will take one woman 1.5 months.

Introducing >> Kantha Dune Robes 💕 Our Kantha Dune Robes are made from all-over hand-embroidered kantha on hand woven tussar silk. The kantha, a traditional folk stitch, has been reimagined in a contemporary geometric pattern and colourways.
The fabric is light and soft and has a gentle drape. It is unlined. Our Dune Robes are free-size. Buy online. #kantha #geometric #robe #fairtrade #textilewanderlust

These horse shoe-shaped things are each one layer in our Sari String Necklaces. Each layer is prepared, the strings cut to length and positioned. Then the layers are, well, layered, and the finishing is done. #handmade #artisanal #textilewanderlust

From the country which never ceases to inspire. It's not always easy to work and live here, but India is one of the most inspiring places in the world for creatives. #india #incredibleindia #textilewanderlust #inspiration pic from @goodearthindia

Loading our linen onto the loom, Bihar. While it's most often men who do the weaving in India, much of the work prior to weaving - the silk cultivation, cotton cleaning, spinning, loading the loom - is done by women. #linen #loom #handmade #textilewanderlust thanks @ruaab_loommool for the photo!

On our recent @retreatrecreate textiles tour our amazing workshop teacher & guide, Sue, took us to Sapa market after our two day workshop. Oh my, what a treasure trove of amazing Hmong and Dao textiles, both old and new. We met Sue's mother and had a wonderful time poring over (and purchasing) all the batiks and embroideries 💙

We're back home but still dreaming of our #vietnamtextilestour2017 experiences. Loved this teeny tiny hole-in-the-wall ceramics shop near our Hanoi hotel. It is literally a few shelves carved into the street wall.

Did you ever see a group of more gorgeously dressed women? These are the ladies from the LoLo village who so generously gave up their time ( usually spent working in the corn fields) to stitch with us and teach us their beautiful reverse appliqué technique.

Auntie, from a recent trip to Bhuj. #india #bhuj #textilewanderlust

This woman is from the Red Dao ethnic group. The older women wear these big (and heavy) head- dresses. Many of her daughter and grand-daughter's generation wear a simple red scarf instead. The times they are a changing..... #vietnamtextilestour2017 #retreatrecreate #womenstours #womensretreat #textiles #textiletour #ethnicwear #traditionalcostume #traditionalcostume #traditionaltextiles #traditionalhandcraft #embroidery #reddao #ihavethisthingwithtextiles #textilewanderlust #vietnamtravel #vietnam
