KARDO BODHI JACKET - SUZANI 07 MINT - XL
The fabric uses antique Kantha blankets (up-cycled old saris and lunghis hand-embroidered with a fine rice stitch) sourced from all over India, then textile expert, Santosh Rathi, creates them in Jaisalmer with a traditional Suzani pattern in cotton thread. Stunning. The level of detail in this fabric is absolutely bonkers, the nicest embroidery work I've been fortunate enough to hold in hand. The shape is a simple boxy fit jacket with three front patch pockets and Kardo's signature single contrasting button.
Made in India
The antithesis of mass-produced fast-fashion, KARDO was launched in 2013 with the desire to slow things down and attend to the small details of clothing. Inspired by traditional work-wear and tailoring, KARDO styles the modern dresser with subtle twists on classic silhouettes.
KARDO honours traditional weaving, dying and printing techniques in India for their collections, using fabrics such as Natural Dyed Handloom, Block Printing, IKAT, Natural Indigo Denim, Shibori and Chikankari embroidery. They actively support and collaborate with handloom weaving communities throughout India in the hope that these traditional techniques don’t die out and their impact on the environment is as low as possible.
'IT’S NOT WHERE IT IS MADE THAT MATTERS, BUT WHO MADE IT AND UNDER WHAT CONDITIONS'
