Shimoga Shirt - Handwoven Cotton Kantha Stitched - Indigo


The perfect oversized shirt. The versatility of wearing it open or closed makes it a great layering piece and a Maiwa favourite. The Shimoga Shirt stays true to what we believe about timeless sustainable design; it's easily worn year round.

Sewn from exquisite artisan cloth; naturally dyed, handwoven and handstitched. Natural indigo dyed yarns are woven into cloth with a slight texture in the warp and weft, then passed to another community of artisans to be stitched upon with a running kantha stitch. The resulting cloth asks for adoration and celebration of the craft and the skill of the artisans behind it.
