Our cropped trousers are crafted from artfully hand-dyed and handwoven cotton ikat patterned with polka dots and stripes. With a seat panel, inspired by vintage fisherman trousers, and a low patch pocket on one of the legs.
The weavers work under master artisan Bikshapati Kolaan in the village of Yellanki in Andhra Pradesh. He has been weaving for over 40 years, following the path of his father. The cotton yarns are carefully bound and dyed to create the pattern, then handwoven to create a soft fabric.

This fabric is handloom woven. Weaving irregularities are a pleasing characteristic of handloom woven items and should not be considered a fault. An age-old and complex technique of patterning cloth, whereby the pattern is pre-determined by tie-dyeing the yarn prior to weaving. The characteristic haziness of the pattern that emerges is a pleasing result of this hand process.
