TIGRA TIGRA merges old world textile techniques and futuristic design. A rich colour palette, languid fit and hand-made details are all hallmarks of a TIGRA TIGRA piece.
Since 2012, designer Bailey Hunter has been a partner in an artisan NGO in Gujarat, India which employs over 500 women, and where the majority of TIGRA TIGRA textiles are made. The women work from their homes in order to take care of their family while maintaining their dignity, financial security and self-reliance.
Mashroo is an ancient textile from the Indian subcontinent which was original developed for Islamic nobility. It was created to conform to the tenets of Islam which forbade silk to touch the skin. Mashroo has a cotton weft and silk warp which floats on top of the cotton, which enabled the ruling Islamic nobility to flaunt and wear the luxurious sheen of silk without breaking religious law. Mashroo was a widely popular export to the Ottoman Empire.
