Midnight Garden Kimono Robe in Indigo
100% cotton sateen - french seams - front pockets - wash separately in cool water
This fabric's "syahi" black color is obtained from a mixture of horse-shoe iron, jaggery and water. The fabric is first soaked in a natural mordant known as "harda" derived from the myrobalan nut. When the syahi is printed onto the mordanted fabric it turns a deep black. The fabric is then over dyed in multiple layers of natural indigo, turning the white areas of the fabric a deep blue.
