Oversized shirt with drop shoulder and front neck pleats. One size style.
We are truly excited to introduce you to the fabric in our Natural Indigo dyed New Beginnings shirt. Kala cotton is an indigenous variety of cotton that is grown in the Kachchh region of Gujarat, India. It is known for being organic, as the farmers who grow it do not use any pesticides or synthetic fertilisers. This makes it a more sustainable and environmentally friendly crop than conventional cotton.
Kala cotton is also unique in that it is a purely rain-fed crop, meaning that it relies solely on rainfall for irrigation. This makes it well-suited to the arid climate of Kachchh, where water resources are limited. Additionally, kala cotton is highly resilient and has a high tolerance for both pests and disease, making it a low-maintenance crop that requires minimal investment.
Overall, kala cotton is a great example of how traditional and indigenous farming practices can be both sustainable and productive. By supporting the cultivation of kala cotton, we can help to promote more environmentally friendly and socially responsible practices in the cotton industry.
