Straight wraparound skirt, two-skirts-in-one, designed with two cotton fabrics. The front panel of the skirt when tied on the left hip is a plain handloom Mangalgiri cotton in ochre yellow. When the skirt is tied on the right hip, it looks like it's made from a single fabric, here, handspun and handwoven with ochre yellow Kalamkari hand block print on black in natural colours.

This product has been specially curated by BEAD, a social enterprise whose mission is to create opportunities for a low-wage earner to supplement family income and improve her living standards. Most of the woven and/or printed materials used to make these products are drawn from the vast textile heritage of India.
This skirt is approximately 39 inches (100 cm.) long and fits waist sizes up to 44 inches (112 cm.).
The kalamkari fabric used here is handloom cotton and designed with natural dyes.

Color hues may slightly vary from that which appears in the image.
The imperfections in the weave or print, spots of dye or occasional patch of colour, are all features of handloom weaves, hand-prints and the craftsmanship involved in the production of this fabric.
Special Instructions :
• Natural dyes tend to run colour. Please follow these steps to minimise colour bleed.
• First, soak the skirt for 5 minutes in half bucket of cold water + 2 teaspoons of common salt. Rinse and dry in shade.
• For subsequent washes, use mild soap, do not soak, rinse thoroughly and dry inside out in shade.
• Sunlight will cause the garment to fade. Hand wash is preferable; machine wash in cold water with similar colours only.
