Our signature Dune Robes are one-size overlays, crafted from a single length of fabric and designed to make our beautiful textiles into highly wearable pieces which drape, layer and flow beautifully.
This style crafted from zari metallic thread woven onto a khadi cotton base that has a rich, lustrous shine; the texture is soft but the fabric maintains its shape. Silver stripes on one side, and a thin red selvedge along the back, sleeves and hem, add a finsihing touch to this gorgeous piece.

Zari Dune Robe
This robe is the result of a lengthy process, whereby cotton fibres are carefully hand spun and hand woven by rural Bengali weavers. This fabric is known as khadi and for this style, we have added a high-shine zari thread into the weave to give an incredibly rich shine and lustre. Any variations or irregularities are part of the design and inherent to the production process.
- Ethical: yarn spinning is done by members of KVI, a government-supported non-profit organisation providing rural artisans with regular work. Weaving is completed by a for-profit family-run company ensuring weavers get full-year employment and fair wages. Garments are stitched in our Delhi workshop where workers receive well above the minimum wage and enjoy flexible, safe and comfortable working conditions.
