Jamdhani is a discontinuous weft technique of weaving, and can be defined as the art of fine ‘Parsi Gara’ done on the loom. In Jamdhani, motifs are inlaid into the fabric by adding a denser thread to warp threads by hand.  This technique is extremely difficult and time consuming  involving extremely skilled textile artistry.

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.
