NEW! The Spice of Life Palazzos
NEW! The Spice of Life Palazzos
Cardamom. Black Pepper. Cinnamon. India’s famous spices have been attracting foreign traders for a long time! But it’s the spice of life—variety—that draws us back to India again and again! The Spice of Life Palazzos are a celebration of India’s incredible variety of landscapes, languages, food, clothing, religions, climates, traditions, flora, and fauna. For the citizen and the visitor alike—there is no end of things to discover and be surprised by in this land.
Palazzos are called “shararas” in some parts of India--and come in a variety of leg widths and fabrics. They are most often paired with longer kurtas for an elegant look. With their loose fit and light, breathable fabrics, they are a comfortable choice for the hot climates in the Indian subcontinent.
Each Spice of Life Palazzo was hand stitched by Born Global Artisan Partners in India from 4 beautiful fabrics (from left to right):
Rani pink, black and golden print on white bizzy lizzy (poly-cotton blend).
Turmeric-toned cotton with black brocade.
Blue, black, and tan kalamkari on cotton
You can pair these elastic-waist palazzos with one of our reversible kurtas for a trendy Indian look for your 14” doll, or use them with some of your doll’s existing Western style wardrobe. Either way, your doll will look great and you can feel great knowing your purchase blesses the Born Global Artisan Partners with Joyful Vocation, Fair Wages, and Home-Based Employment!
Garments are designed to fit nicely on any Hearts 4 Hearts Doll. If your doll is a 14” doll of a different variety, refer to the garment measurements below to get a sense of how it will fit:
Elastic waist: 5” (stretches to 7”)
To ensure this clothing continues to fit your doll and look great, wash on gentle cycle in cold water and air dry on a flat surface. When needed, press with an iron heated to the Polyester setting.
HOW IT WAS MADE
+ These palazzos were hand-stitched with sew-all rPET thread by Gutermann. We love this thread!
+ To prevent fraying, and increase the lifespan of the palazzo, all raw edges were finished with a hand-sewing stitch called “picot” (pronounced pee-co).
+ We always sew with pre-washed fabrics. We know this takes away that “like new” shine from the fabrics. But we do it to reduce our artisan’s exposure to chemicals when handling the fabric, and to minimize the possibility of the finished product shrinking when you wash it.
+ These palazzos were hand sewn in the homes of our Artisan Partners in India. Each woman took care to sew them in a clean, hygienic environment and kept the finished pieces stored in air-tight bags to protect them from odors, dust, and other contaminants.
+ These palazzos have been around the world and back, but we want them to come to you as fresh and clean as a rain-washed mango. That’s why each Artisan Partner-made piece is first hand-washed with gentle soap, rinsed in warm lavender/thyme water, and dried in the sun and wind at Seekna HQ before we list it in our shop.
+ The pattern for these 14” palazzos was developed by Amy Sharp and Moriah Sharp in 2018, and is the property of Seekna Company LLC.
