Classic Injiri handwoven cotton stripes in shades of blue and indigo. Band collar, buttons down the front, embroidery detailing at the bodice.
Injiri clothing is entirely handmade, from weaving and dyeing to the last trims and finishes. The hands of many craftspeople from various regions utilize traditional skills.
Injiri, meaning “real India”, historically stands for “real Madras checkered textiles” which were exported to West Africa in the 18th century. Launched in 2009 as a clothing brand by Chinar Farooqui, Injiri believes in the beauty of hand-weaving processes. Injiri as a brand is more about story-telling. The end point is reflective of the journey of many processes.
