THE STORY
Moving away from the indigo tones of traditional shibori, this range of apparel by Charkohl features vibrant spring colors and India-inspired trim details in flowing silhouettes. Entirely hand-dyed and handcrafted by artisans, this collection is a breath of fresh air and a call to step forth and breakaway this season!

In Japan, the earliest known example of cloth dyeing using shibori dates from the 8th century. Shibori uses the stitching technique of resisting, wherein the resisted portion is stitched and then pulled to make gathers. The shibori cloth is bound, resisted, wrapped and gathered by hand and this step is repeated for each colour dye it is dipped in, making it an elaborate process.

Ombré is a French word meaning “to shade” and is used to describe a dip-dye effect given to fabric in which the shades of color graduate from light to dark.
