Kardo's Sai grey floral overall pattern short sleeve button down shirt. This 100% handwoven cotton shirt has a fly away collar, one chest patch pocket and back double pleat. Hand finished seams. Made in India by one tailor from start to finish. 

A regular collar hand block print shirt.

This hand block print shirt is in collaboration with ANOKHI, the masters of block printing, who almost single-handedly revived this traditional textile printing practice and the livelihoods of block printing communities in Rajasthan since the 1970s. The technique involves the meticulous precision of hand stamping a motif onto the fabric using a wooden block. It’s a skill, often passed down through the generations, that requires patience and precision.

CARE
Wash cold with like colors, tumble dry low or dry flat.

BRAND NOTES
Kardo is the antithesis of mass-produced fashion. Launched in 2013 with the goal of creating a company that honors traditional weaving, dying and printing techniques in India to create contemporary workwear with subtle twists. They work directly with the hand-weaving community throughout India to help keep these skills alive and vibrant and reduce their environmental footprint. Each item is made start to finish by one single tailor. Kardo manufactures out of their own workshop in New Delhi, providing fair wages to workers and healthy and safe working environment.

These garments are made with fabric from Khamir Crafts, an organisation that serves as a platform for the promotion of traditional handicrafts and allied cultural practices from Kutch, Gujarat. Their textile weaving involves Khadi (hand spinning yarn) and hand-weaving fabric as well as hand-block and resist print techniques, all using natural dyes.  As a region of parched land, the region’s textile communities have a circular system, where all residual water from the textile process can be used in arable land due to natural plant based dying process.
