Our Khadi Kurti from Dhaaga is crafted from 100% soft handwoven khadi. This stunning kurti is adorned by the beautiful yakshagana motif. Yakshagana — the tradition of theatre most commonly associated with Karnataka — is known for its elaborate costumes, make-up and masks. The name comes from the words yaksha, meaning spirit, and gana meaning song, and the performance is a festive celebration. It is that same spirit that we bring to you in our kurti.
Our Khadi Kurti is from Dhaaga — The Weave of Threads. Read more about our collection here.
Fabrics & Materials
We use only fabrics with natural colours. Due to this the colours may vary slightly product to product and might fade slightly with first two washes.
Wash Care Instructions
At AdiValka we work really hard at our craft, to create a product you will love, and so we have developed a specific set of wash-care instructions to ensure that they retain their quality for as long as possible. Our products are all made from hand-loom fabrics, so we recommend hand-wash only with a mild cleanser for these fabrics. Always wash your fabrics with a gentle touch — don’t scrub the garment. Some fabrics will bleed colour for the first one or two washes, so we recommend washing them separately initially. Also remember, per the nature of pure cotton fabrics, you should expect some shrinkage on washing.
For drying, we recommend hand drying the products in the shade, preferably on a flat surface, so that the fabric is not exposed to harsh conditions. And lastly, if you’re ironing the garment, use a low-heat setting.
Do not bleach, dry clean, tumble drying, and use harsh soap agents for these products.
To take extra care, soak them in cold water diluted with salt the first time before washing – this helps with the colour bleeding and in retaining the vibrancy of the colour.
Expect delivery within three weeks of placing the order, unless expedited shipping is specifically requested and paid for.
