Featuring Fashion Wear Collection of Tath by Design

handloom kurta design

Diwali is a special time for us as all and as we know the Wedding season is also around the corner. Celebrating Handlooms and the dedication to craftsmen and textile design,  has always been a passion for me.  In sharing this journey is also the focus of the Design House – TATH by Prasad Ramamurthy

As he says in his words,” Tath (@tathbydesign on Facebook and Instagram) is a Mumbai-based label that uses traditional handlooms – Pochampally ikkat, Mangalari handloom, kala cotton from Kutch, organic cotton from Koraput, Odisha – and printing techniques – daboo, Bagru, kalamkari – to create very modern clothing for men and women. For instance, the under-production line, coming to Chennai, is inspired by Mumbai’s rich Art Deo history, especially from little documented areas such as Matunga and Sion. With less than 15 pieces of any garment being produced the aim is to create clothing that is limited in design and by intent. Tath sticks to the organic end of the spectrum, insisting on the use of pesticide-free cotton and azo-free dyes, where natural dyes are not available.”

THE SARI KURTAKurta Handloom Design

Inspired by the wonderful textiles and the Sari weaves from weavers in Paramakudi town, in south Tamil Nadu. Each sari, from which fabric for this kurta is taken, took three days to weave. Not a textile which is seen for Mens Kurtas , the garment is indeed special on so many levels. A woven handspun cotton with the sheen of silk, the checks and muted colors are bold yet understated that is head-turner anywhere. In my love for pairing things together you can see this Bengali silk dhoti and mojris from Lucknow. So this festival season its about bringing all these wonderful crafted elements from across the country.Handloom Mens kurtaHandloom kurtas for men

Do check the details of this amazing kurta and the details of the weave!! And hope you all like the overlap of the many Indian traditional elements.

THE TASSELED SHIRThandloom Indian shirt

Exploring the range of Fabrics from Paramakudi which, is prominent centre for weaving and produces the most diaphanous and lustrous cotton fabrics is this very special textile. Featuring the rudraksh and mango in its weave, both of which are traditional motifs used in south designs. The colors are very special as this mustard is one of the most unusual shades and hardly ever seen in men’s clothing. The one sided tassles are very clever in my opinion which you can see is taken from the saree pallu.

Paired here with pattern pajamas are traditional lowers one often sees in Thailand, is my constant play of pattern and handicrafts. Simple leather mojaris are used to close the final look. Do let me know what you think.Handloom festive design menswear

    Both the shirt and the kurta design is really good. Being a bengali myself I always like good kurta as I feel till date men look good in ethnic wear. Moreover, the quality of both of these looks really good and comfortable. I really liked the background u hv prvided though.

    I like the kurta a lot and the tasseled shirt seemed very well paired with those pajamas. I generally don’t prefer kurta but this one is looking very elegant.
