Aisha Boatneck Dress in Black Potai
The Aisha dress has raglan long sleeves, a fitted silhouette with a belt to accentuate the waist. Hits below the knee.
Handwoven on a traditional foot pedal loom that creates a unique and unmatched texture. Its hand-spun yarns are naturally dyed by hand at a family-run workshop using natural minerals and plants.
Its unique Potai pattern is achieved using a technique that results in a brushed marble-like print. A paste is made of pomegranate peel, turmeric, and sesame oil. The artisan applies the paste on the cloth using a piece of woven cloth using broad strokes. When the application is complete, the fabric is then dried and dipped in a solution to set the dye.
