Kamcha Line - Potlis (Set of 2)

Regular price $12.00

From the land of tea plantations and silk fabrics, we procured the traditional "kamcha" which is a piece of white fabric with elaborate depictions of wildlife, temples and other treasures found in the state of Assam (the northeast of India).  Assam is home to the one-horned Indian Rhino, the wild water buffalo, and exotic flora. No surprise then, that scenes from nature depicting the flora and fauna, can be found on the kamchas. A red thread is used to weave the pictures into the kamchas that are worn by both men and women.  As soon as we laid our eyes on the kamchas, our imagination ran wild with all the products we could make from them. 

Our designer got to work, drawing picture after picture, and then our women sat down on their sewing machines to make our vision come to life.  And so started our "Kamcha Line" -- a unique line of products to celebrate weavers from Assam. 

All profits from this line of products will support the work of "Ekal Vidyalaya", in the work they do in the state of Assam. 

This kamcha potli is one you can carry for an evening/night out on town. Drop you phone and wallet inside and slip your wrist into the soft cotton ties!  Or use it to store all your tech accessories.
