Our textile intern, Jasmine, just completed work on a new print collection developed for kids wear.  The original inspiration for these prints is found in Japanese origami designs with fun, quirky flowers, bright colours and a bubbly, playful feel.  The collection combines origami inspiration with a world of playful fairy garden images.  The look - butterflies, bluebells, floating petals, pansies. Jasmine worked on several coordinating designs for this collection and was fortunate to be able to see several designs through to the final form--carved wood blocks and 2 days of sample printing in Sanganeer!  The collection also uses designs from Freddie's and Zuzana's work,  former interns at Mehera Shaw.

Our styles are meant to give room to breath and move.  We use fine tailoring coupled with a relaxed, comfortable fit.

We use a fit guide for each of our styles to provide more information about the fit that was intended.

Slim Fit: a close fit to the body. Regular Fit: a comfortable, relaxed fit with room around the body. Generous Fit: a very loose fit (such as in our oversized blouses) with lots of room around the body for ease of movement.

Wash Care

We recommend cold water machine wash with a bio detergent and either tumble dry on low heat or line dry in shade for all of our 100% cotton garments.  Cold water wash and low heat drying or line drying in the shade will increase the life of the garment, prolong the vibrancy of the colors and reduce energy use. Shrinkage on all cottons is minimal, approximately 3%.


For our silk and cotton silk garments, we also recommend gentle cycle machine wash cold water or delicate hand washing to increase the life of the garment and reduce the environmental footprint from energy use, detergents and water wastage.


All garments have been washed several times during the printing/dyeing and manufacturing process.
