Half Sleeve Shirt - Rust Mixed Weave Khadi
Our classic half-sleeve top has returned in the ultimate natural colourway! This mixed weave rust khadi is a fabric that has never been featured in a The ANJELMS Project collection before, as it is hand-loomed using many different coloured threads to achieve a natural, raw, and textured colourway of rust.
The story of this fabric is one that we are privileged to be a part of, as we discovered it on our recent trip to India on a day when we visited the weavers who hand spin and handloom all our natural Khadi Cotton with The Stitching Project in Pushkar. We saw this lightweight, natural multicoloured weave and instantly fell in love, and we believe that the half-sleeve top is the perfect staple top to feature in this fabric. The unique properties of our hand-spun, hand-loomed Khadi means that the feeling of the completed garment on your skin is one of the best in the world.
It is the ultimate for comfort as its loose fit allows layering with a collared shirt or long-sleeve top underneath in the cooler months or thrown over the top of your bathers in the summer. Featuring a rounded neckline, sleeves that fall to the elbow with a generous soft cuff. It sits on top of the hip at the front and has a longer rounded back for extra comfort whether you choose to wear it loose or tucked in. Enjoy the luxury of this beautiful textured weave all year round!
As always, our garments are designed in Fremantle, Western Australia. Made ethically from 100% hand-loomed Khadi Cotton in Pushkar, India by The Stitching Project. Designs are hand carved onto wooden blocks. Then Pawan, our block printer at The Stitching Project places each block onto the ink board. This process is repeated a hundred times over with amazing precision and experience to create the perfect patterns. All our dyes are Global Organic Textile Standards (G.O.T.S) Certified, and our fabric and processes are Craftmark Certified. Each of our Garments are proudly signed by every craftsperson who has had a hand in making it.
