Just received my Sideswept Dhoti and am so happy with them! They feel great. Even with the thick fabric, they're still pretty breezy - great for the sweltering heat of the southern US. And amazingly soft fabric and quality! I will be ordering more from you in the near future!

Pant In The Past:
The first dhoti can be traced back to 5th century BC where men of the Indus civilization wrapped this loose cotton garment around their waists. Its name is derived from the word dhauta, and is also called by the Sanskrit word pancha which means five, a nod to the fact that it was originally made from a five yard long strip of cloth. Usually seen on men in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal, the comfortable dhoti is also considered a formal wear - Gandhi wore it on public occasions. The colour matters too - red Dhotis are worn by priests at temples, and gold or rich coloured ones are worn by King and poets!

The Sideswept Dhoti + India Charcoal

Inspired by the multifold drapes of the Indian dhoti, this is an edgier version designed for modern asymmetry and here for the first time in 100 percent full, luxuriant handprinted silk.

This limited edition features of course the INDIA print from the Then&There edition by Nitya Amarnath from Botto, whose story for this print is on its vast differences of textile visual language in print and woven fabric from all corners. The floral visual from the west, geometric motifs from the north, hand painted motifs from the south, woven motifs from the east, all come together to form a kaleidoscopic motif which represents the diversity of the subcontinent.

100% full silk. Colour variations may occur and is part of the charm of this handprinted fabric.

Model is a US Size 2-4, wears Matter Size 1. 169cm tall. Size chart here.

    Care Instructions


    Dry clean preferred to maintain colour and handfeel of this delicate silk fabric. Otherwise, handwash cold with mild detergent, although this will lead to a slight change in colour tone and handfeel. Do not wring or tumble dry. Line dry inside out. Iron inside out using a low-temperature setting for silk.
