Blue-Coral Kashmiri Robe with Ari Embroidered Flowers by Hand
This statement-making robe is bound to become your second skin. As fashionable as it is functional, it ticks all the boxes on the list of quintessentially Kashmiri aesthetics. Fashioned from the warmest variety of homegrown wool, check. Dyed a deep gorgeous shade of pastel blue, like a lake in the valley reflecting the skies above, check. Luxuriant proportions of the endemic ari embroidery across the field of the dress, check. Drape this over your form such as to layer the front-panels for greater warmth, and hold it in place with the substantial belt at the waist (it comes with a panel of embroidery that matches the one along the edges of the panels).
The Kashmiri artisan's way with crewelwork makes for striking results. From the continuous chain stitches one could observe by zooming in on the motifs to the signature colour palette of natural pastels, ari embroidery is instantaneously recognisable and inimitable. It finds its way into most of the much-coveted produce of the region, from shawls and stoles to jackets and sarees, and is the very picture of Kashmiri aesthetics and traditional elegance. Indeed this one-of-a-kind robe is for those of us for whom glamour is a habit.
