NEW! The Samudra 2-in-1 Long Kurta
NEW! The Samudra 2-in-1 Long Kurta
India has more than 7500 kilometers of ocean shore enjoyed by 9 states and 4 union territories. This Samudra 2-in-1 Kurta is a tribute to the sandy shores and blue depths of the Indian Ocean, Arabian Sea, Lakshadweep Sea, and the Bay of Bengal. (Samudra is the Sanskrit word for “sea.”)
Born Global’s Artisan Partners in India hand-stitched this reversible kurta from beautifully block-printed cotton. Side one of this kurta features a resist-dye white floral print on a two-tone indigo background. The other side features the iconic “boteh” (more commonly know as “paisley”) pattern block-printed on light-weight cotton that allows a faint glimpse of the pattern from the indigo side to echo through.
To make a trendy Indian look for your doll, pair this reversible kurta with any of Born Global’s Small but Mighty Churidars or your favorite Shades of Indigo palazzo. Or, combine the kurta with some of your doll’s existing Western wardrobe for an Asian-fusion look. Either way, your doll will look great and you can feel great—knowing that your purchase blesses Born Global’s Artisan Partners with Joyful Vocation, Fair Wages, and Home-Based Employment.
NOTE: clothesline and clothespins are for display only and are not included with purchase.
WARNING: Because this kurta has snaps for fasteners, and it is not suitable for use in unsupervised play by children under age 5.
+ This kurta is 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:
Arm Circumference: 2”
Bust Circumference: 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 Cotton setting.
HOW IT WAS MADE
+ The Samudra 2-in-1 Long Kurta was hand-stitched with the super strong and earth friendly all-sew rPET thread by Gutermann.
+ 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 kurtas 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 kurtas have been around the world and back, but we want them to come to you as fresh and clean as a rain-washed sunrise. 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 before we list it in our shop.
+ The pattern for these 2-in-1 reversible long kurtas was developed by Amy Sharp and Moriah Sharp in 2018, and is the property of Seekna Company LLC.
