Handwoven Denim Work Shirt | Indigo Blue Selvedge | Heritage Classic

Size: Small

The Softest, Lightest, Most Luxurious, Classic Denim Shirt You Have Ever Owned | Incredible Handwoven Denim | Yarn-Dyed Natural Indigo Color

    We upgraded your favorite denim shirt with soft, light, incredible hand loomed cotton in true indigo from the 4000-year-old heritage of Indian textiles. This is the lightest, softest, most breathable denim shirt you'll ever own.

    The textile is a hand-spun, hand-woven selvedge denim fabric made without electricity or chemicals. It has an incredible, visibly different, handloom texture.  Shirts are stitched by a single tailor. Made in small quantities, this is elevated, sustainable, fair-trade clothing.

    Our carbon neutral handwovens embody the elements of truly handmade artisan products.  The thread is handspun on a wooden wheel.  Craftspeople hand weave the threads into denim cloth on a treadle loom, (foot-pedal-driven).  The fermented indigo dye comes from indigo leaves, cane sugar, lime, expertise and time.

    The design is a classic men's denim work shirt style with double pockets, easy fit and double seams.  Looks great tucked or untucked.

        • Handwoven Textiles

          The historical center of beautiful textiles is India which has a textile tradition going back at least 4,000 years on two vectors. One vector is handweaving, which the market valued for sensory qualities of airiness, softness and coolness on the skin. The other is India’s unparalleled command of natural plant dyes, refined pattern designs and sophisticated, sequenced techniques of printing, dyeing and binding color to cloth. These amazingly sophisticated heritage crafts are a standard in sustainable fashion.

          Hand-spun, hand-woven textiles are made without electricity or chemicals. These heritage fabrics have an incredible, visibly different, handloom texture with story and soul. Made in small quantities, by a single tailor, these are elevated, sustainable, fair-trade clothes.

        • Handmade | Blockprint | Natural Dye Product Care

          Handmades are different than commercial products and require a different kind of care for long, luxurious product life. Hand embroidered and beaded products should be spot cleaned. Whenever you need deeper cleaning, use a professional dry cleaner known for gentle, non-toxic methods and materials.

          Handwovens and Natural Dyes

          Handwovens and natural dyes are created pretty much the way they have been made for over 1000 years. As pre-industrial products, they pre-date chemical mordants to affix color. On the making end, handmades and natural dyes are almost perfectly circular and don't pollute or create toxic waste. They are joyful to use because they have living finishes with beauty and soul.

          Natural dyes require traditional care in order to maintain their beauty and longevity. Care Gently spot, hand, or gentle machine wash in cold water. No twisting or wringing. Dry flat for best shape retention. Light iron. Do not bleach. Use an eco-friendly/natural, free from chemicals & as pH neutral as possible. Avoid added fragrances and conditioners. Or, dry clean.

          Caution Keep natural dyes away from anything acidic or alkaline, which can instantly bleach natural dyes. The stay-away list includes citrus, wine, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, calcium, baking soda, etc.
