Injiri: Sleeveless Blue/White Neel Dress


A lustrous silk/cotton blend combines plaid, stripe, solid and jamdani embroidered panels in a spectacular way.  Intricately worked smocked bodice fastens at one side with tiny signature Injiri buttons.

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.
