Injiri

Handwoven Muslin Dress

$500.00 $250.00

Light and delicate, this muslin dress is a pullover style with long sleeves and a full skirt with pleat detailing for stunning drape and movement. The techniques used for this dress are that of jamdani and chikankari both having its origins in the Mughal era. The two crafts were patronized by Mughal rulers as their fabrics for summer wear. 

Injiri, meaning “real India”, historically stands for “real Madras checkered textiles” which were exported to West Africa back in the 18th century. Launched in 2009 by Chinar Farooqui, Injiri believes in the beauty of hand-weaving processes, and focuses on textile development and sustainable usage of materials. Injiri as a brand is more about story-telling, the end point is reflective of the journey of many processes.
