Kimono Alba

by Kapikua

The fabric of our Alba piece is made by hand with organic cotton threads woven on pedal loom. A special technique is used to weave the threads with loose tension making it a very light wear. 

This color combines threads in green and brown shades. The green shade comes from a double dye bath process over wood fire, extracting color from indigo and pericón plants. While the brown shade comes from coyuchi cotton or naturally colored cotton, without the need to dye. 

The piece is woven together on the back using a technique known as randa, traditional of the Oaxacan community, in Mexico.
