The fabric used in this collection is a soft hand dyed cotton, which is woven on a traditional teak and bamboo handloom in Magwe, Myanmar. You can learn more about our supply chain here.
Like all clothing, we recommend that your piece should be washed sparingly. Although it survives a gentle cycle in the machine, a warm hand wash is best for handloom fabrics, and your garment should never go in the dryer.
We have received occasional feedback of running dye, or dye fading when hung up in intense sunlight for long periods. Although this is unusual, we recommend keeping this in mind.
Each piece is created to allude to a heavily tailored silhouette, but is deceptively simple in its construction - a design decision that is not just a perfect fit for The Fabric Social’s minimalist aesthetic, but also allows us to work with MBoutik’s tailors whose lack of reliable electricity precludes the use of modern electric sewing machines.
