Our woven yard-dyed patterns were uncovered in decayed old archives, which is likely why you'll be the first in your neighborhood to have a pair. 4-oz. 100% cotton. Made in USA of imported fabric. Machine washable.

Then I stumbled upon the largest archive of authentic Indian Madras in North America. Far more than any human could digest. I’m partial to muted, earth toned patterns, but you may be one of the many looking for bright plaids. Either way, you’ve come to the right place.
