Kappu Ilkal Shift Dress

Regular price Rs. 2,490.00

Kappu, meaning black in kannada.

A midi length shift dress unlike any other, crafted from pure handloom ilkal in a classically stunning combination of black and red. Surreptitiously placed details lets the Kappu shift dress stay simple and earthy, while retaining its individuality.

This dress has an ilkal border panel with khunn piping on one side subtly placed to ensure it doesn’t dominate every conversation, but is always visible. Our love for pockets with little details is evident in the potli style pocket on the right side with an adjustable drawstring made of handwoven khunn.

Wear this as a kurta with gold pants or as a dress, styling it with colourful bangles, bindi and dual tone jewellery, comfortably fusing modernity with tradition much like yourself.

  • Drawstring potli-style pocket with khunn piping
