Gold Lahori Skirt

& Santiniketan

The women of Santiniketan have been sewing layers of recycled saris together to make quilts for centuries. It's a running stitch technique called Kantha and is currently the fashion diktat of the region. In West Bangal, Kantha has been elevated beyond traditional quilts to elaborate embroidery that adorns everything from Khadi cotton to Tussar silk. We hope to expand the reach of Kantha beyond traditional Indian wear by incorporating it into styles more commonly worn on this side of the world.

Gold Lahori Skirt

275.00

The Lahori skirt is a beautiful, hand-embroidered, midi skirt with contrast piping at the hip and hidden pockets. It's lined with a thin layer of tule to add a bit of body and the exposed zipper in the back adds a touch of edge to this feminine form. Dress it up or dress it down. We love the versatility of this skirt. 100% Silk. Dry clean only.

& Begum

Begum leads a Kantha collective of over two hundred women in her village. She and her sister are predominantly responsible for the color and pattern designs for the collective. She also teaches more intricate stitches and works with women of varying skill levels to develop stronger craft. 

The Lahori skirt has a modern look with a very traditional touch. The motif used in this skirt is Lahori Kantha. The name Lahori was derived from the Persian word ‘lehr’, which means wave. So while the design looks modern and graphic, it's actually ancient.
