Black Muslin Dress
Injiri, meaning “real India”.
The brand focus is on textile development and sustainable usage of materials. Each dress is produced entirely by hand, from weaving and dying to the last trim and finishes.It passes through the hands of craftspeople from various parts of India utilising traditional skills and techniques that differ from region to region.
In olden days making clothes was a very slow process and allowed the maker to do each piece at leisure. In the past woven material was a precious commodity and was used frugally. The “hand-made” quality in antique pieces is very evident and what inspires injiri over and over again.
These dresses are sheer and may require a slip. This dress has a white crochet bottom as pictured in the last photo.
Material - 50% silk, 50% cotton. Any irregularities in weaving and dying are a feature of handwoven textiles.
Handmade In India by Injiri.
