The handloom Khesh weave has been very close to our hearts building our sustainability story stronger.
The exploration and understanding started when the team visited West Bengal’s Birbhum district. The weavers there collect cotton saree’s and the women patiently tear the sari into multiple long strips.
The thin strips are then incorporated into new fabric. The weaver sits intently on his Hand Loom machine twisting and adding the thin strips of the sarees to fresh warp threads, to create the new and up-cycled Khesh weave.
The fabric develops stripes that can sometimes differ in color meter to meter. The “beautiful irregularity” is precisely its uniqueness.
