The Village Blouse is a beautiful piece of contemporary jamdani textile interpreted into a timeless wardrobe piece using intricate, subtle hand-finished detailing.
The minimal extra-weft motif for the Village Blouse is a bespoke design developed by the Nila studio, expertly articulated into diaphanous, buttery soft cotton jamdani by our weaving partners in West Bengal. The feather light jamdani designs have been made weaving indigo yarn in the deepest Shade 8, creating a delicate and memorable contrast to the un-dyed, white muslin base.
To elevate the ethereal feel of the blouse, hand ‘jaali’ work has been used at the arms and down the front panel, in place of darts. ‘Jaali’ thread-work is masterful method of exploring seams to let in light and air. Named after intricate Mughal stonework used in windows, this lattice technique gives clothing a sense of lightness and fragility, so they are seemingly ephemeral yet extremely strong. The seams are opened up as much as possible so that each panel of the layered piece appears to float. For a touch of iridescent shine, the blouse carries a set of Mother of Pearl button down the front.
The feather light Village Blouse makes for a perfect summer staple that can be styled in myriad ways. Layer the blouse on our pure cotton Slip Top and pair it with the Cargo Pants in Shade 5 for an effortlessly elegant summer look.

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 of the indigo textile may fade slightly over time, with exposure to direct sunlight.
