*Reuse ~Recycle~Reduce* are the 3 words to save our Planet Earth from landfills of waste cloth on its surface. I find myself very lucky to be born in India, the land of cotton. Cotton is one such biodegradable fabric that can be *Recycled*. There are many types of cotton fabrics and one of them is *Ajrakh*. This summer, I was introduced to this fabric by *Turquoise*the store.
They manufacture and design natural fabrics from generations. Also, They not only design garments using handmade cotton but also use natural dyes. The process of ‘Ajrakh’ is long. It is block printed with a resistant paste and then dyed. Eventually, the entire process takes two weeks resulting in beautiful eye-catching patterns of Ajrakh. The technique used in the fabric of my dress is brush print and customized to my size.
The dress worn by me was gifted by *Turquoise* the store.’Ridhi-the the designer has designed the dress in 2 pieces where one is the jacket. The fabric is super comfortable for Indian summers, especially where I live Chennai. When a soothing fabric and well-designed dress come together can be worn in the day as well as for parties at night. I have styled this look from a simple day look to a party look by adding a gold statement neckpiece and heels.
Find them at their store and don’t forget to follow them on social networking sites.
