Product: Uni Clo is a non-gender specific clothing line, an abbreviation for UNIversal CLOthing, where the garments are made using Ambara Charaka spun and hand-woven cotton fabric.
Reason: Despite the recent challenges, many of the spinners and weavers of north Karnataka, safely working from home and/or working at co-operative societies were weaving Kora fabric with the existing raw material and without the strain of transporting the yarn for dyeing. The fabric, spun and hand-woven by the women workforce of north Karnataka, with all the warmth and imperfections, embodies the beauty in the versatility and ease of the local craft. Needless to say, we encouraged them to continue working without the use of colour.
Utility: This garment is light-weight, absorbs moisture, and breathes well. Hence, wear this garment as loungewear, while working from home, yoga, meditation, as a Baniyan/undershirt, or as nightwear. A replacement to your knit-tee-shirt by a handmade fabric and it's a great to gift too!
Fabric and garment: The Kora fabric, the colour of 'the cotton boll' in all its purity and unbleached is a symbol of simplicity, contentment, eternal, and natures best. The garment is made from mid-weight (32 counts) Ambara Charaka spun and handwoven cotton fabric and has closed round neck, elbow-length sleeves, small side slits, single side pocket, and short front placket sans any buttons which are the telltale sign of our classic design and orderly tailoring.
Care: Wash this garment in cold water with mild/no detergents separately and hang them to dry under the shade, the fabric becomes softer and suppler with every wash making it as one of the most comfortable garments you own and guess what, there are no itchy polyester labels! As this garment is an easy-wear, we suggest you buy one size bigger to what you usually shop. Though the fabric is pre-washed, allow a 2% shrinkage in the garment.
Size: The sizes mentioned below are of the shirt and not the body. We suggest you measure one of your shirts which fits you well and compare that to our size chart, you will find a match. Expect 2% fabric shrinkage.
