Our Loungers are relaxed-fit and oversized robes with an open front and drop-shoulders. They are collar-less and feature facing in the sleeves, front, and back yoke to provide structure.

 

This style crafted from a soft, mid-weight blend of wool and eri silk, hand woven on pit looms by the Vankar weaving community in Bhuj. The cloth is coal black and flecked with thin, irregular stripes of natural beige eri silk. A rich, supplementary weft border in golden beige tussar silk decorates the hem and adds weight. 

 

Our free sizing is intended to compliment most body shapes and sizes. The fabric gives a beautiful drape to the modern box shape and oversized sleeves. We love wearing it with the sleeves folded up to hit just below the elbow.

75% wool and 25% silk. We recommend dry-cleaning.
