Sleeveless Hoodie in Shade 5
The Nila x Anna Valentine sleeveless hoodie is inspired by a classic archive cut, reinterpreted by Nila. The combination of the ultra-modern cut and rich silk fabric with kantha embroidery, make it a versatile, timeless wardrobe collectible.
Made of handloom silk hand-woven in Karnataka, each piece has a surface detailing of kantha embroidery - a simple yet intricate running stitch, typically done by women in West Bengal. Three layers of silk have been pressed together and embroidered on. If you look closely, the kantha embroidery has a graphic star shape formation, which requires meticulous precision to achieve.
The deep, sapphire blue of this piece is achieved by dyeing individual pieces of silk in a natural indigo vat. The delicate silk fabric is dipped five times in the vat, with great skill and dexterity, to get the perfect tone, highlighting the brilliance of the dye and the fabric.
The sleeveless hoodie is also available in Shade 2 - a cool, icy blue version of this one.
