Maku Indigo-dyed Textured Silk Duster Uluka

$395.00

Maku Textiles is India-based, founded and directed by designer, Santanu Das.  He finished design education at the National Institute of Design in India, worked in New York, and returned to India to launch his “Slow Fashion” brand, MAKU. ” ‘Maku’ is a Bengali word that literally means the shuttle that we use in the handloom”, Santanu notes. His interest is largely in preserving indigo, “There are so many misconceptions about indigo and that’s one of the reasons why we picked it [as our main colour]. Indigo is hand-dyed and its shade cannot be replicated. You cannot make a recipe for it and it depends on many factors such as yield, climate, humidity, temperature and the bacteria. Its various aspects and external elements are what makes it so incredibly valuable. Today, if we cannot appreciate diversity, we will deliberately kill our enriching culture and the knowledge embedded in it.”
