Stara Robe - Modular Black
A Nost favourite – this bold, modern Modular print was inspired by the sharp facets of a metabolist building in Singapore. The monochromatic motif is imprinted on organic cotton, and block-printed by hand using completely natural dyes. Which means it’s gentle and safe for the makers’ skin and also yours! Accented by a mustard yellow lapel, this Stara Robe in Modular Black can be styled over a black top and pants for a day out in the city, or over swimwear for your resort lounge afternoon.
The specks and grains give depth to this piece – a natural outcome of the Kalamkari block printing technique, a traditional and fading craft practised by a skilled artisan family from their village home. This time-consuming technique involves twenty three steps including boiling, washing, and printing using various natural ingredients. The colours are a result of natural chemical reactions – black, for instance, comes from iron boiled with pomegranate. Cotton for this mustard lapel is also hand-loomed, which gives its distinctive weave texture. Comes with two pockets and a detachable waist belt.
Measured in circumference. All measurements are subject to 0.75 inch difference.
