LEHERIYA TIE-DYE SILK MASHROO BOXING PANTS, DEEP BLUE/WHITE

435.00

Wide and gathered elastic waist band boxing pant in tie-dye (leheriya) silk mashroo in deep blue and white. Wide leg and cropped at the ankle. Side seam pockets.

Mashroo was created to conform to the tenets of Islam which forbade silk to touch the skin. Weavers developed a fabric with a silk warp and cotton weft,  the cotton laid beneath and grazed the skin, while the silk floated on top. This enabled the ruling Islamic nobility to flaunt and wear the luxurious sheen of silk without breaking the religious law. Mashroo became a widely popular export to the Ottoman Empire. In Patan, wealthy Hindu merchants and traders also took a liking to this fabric and increased its intrinsic value and the inclusion of certain typical motifs, colors and tie-dye.

Shades of blue may vary due to monsoon season.

Made in Patan, India. Sewn in Los Angeles.
