Pocket Culottes in Shade 8
The Nila x Anna Valentine Pocket Culottes are an easy and versatile wardrobe staple. They are the perfect travel companion as the fine, handwoven cotton is featherlight, and they transition seamlessly from day to evening wear.
The 100 count cotton yarn used for their piece is handspun on ‘Amba’ charkhas in West Bengal, before being dipped eight times into natural indigo vats to achieve this rich, deep indigo shade. The entire process of eight dips for the yarn to take on the richest indigo hue can take up to two weeks! Once the dyed yarn was ready, it was then set to hand-operated looms in the same region, to be woven skillfully into this beautiful textile. The entire process from yarn to fabric takes several months and much patience and skill.
The culottes are finished beautifully with French seams, and a fine dotted white stitch which maps the outline of its sculptural cut, highlighting the flattering waist detail and pockets. Wear it with the Silk Kantha Smock for a structured feel, or style it with a simple T-shirt and the Silk Kantha Coat for easy elegance.
100% handloom cotton
Hand wash gently with cold water and line dry in the shade.
Natural indigo is a millennia-old plant dye. The alchemy of earth, water; air, and indigo leaves creates an unpredictable beauty. The rich natural colour may fade ever so slightly over time, with exposure to direct sunlight and the handwoven cotton may carry some imperfections; this is a part of the beauty of handwoven textiles.
This piece is made to be worn and cherished for a long time.
