* Kora

Mar, 29

Kora meaning raw and unbleached fabric, off-white in color.
By definition, off-white means a color, such as cream or bone, consisting of white mixed with a tinge of brown, grey or with a pale hue
.
We, at Metaphor Racha, prefer to describe it as 'the color of cotton boll' in all its purity and unbleached!  Hence, this very nature of kora cotton fabric is a symbol of simplicity, contentment, eternal, and nature's best.
.
Products made from our handspun and hand-woven kora cotton in its purest form have no harsh chemical dye, hence requires a negligible amount of energy, resulting in a less harmful way of producing textiles. (If at all, when the least amount of color  is used, they are Azo-free and as a design element )
.
As this simple yet significant Kora fabric can be hand-woven by a not-so-skilled weaver, it encourages a new generation of rural craftspeople to involve in hand-weaving. The textural beauty of Kora also renders itself in supporting auxiliary craft like hand block-printing or hand-embroidery.
.
We request you to join us in communicating the beauty in simplicity.
