Dyeing Unit Opening Ceremony

April 26, 2014

Congratulations to all our Mehera Shaw team who have made this possible!!  We now have an operational dyeing unit.  In this post, we include photos of our opening ceremony.  We are joined here by all of our Mehera Shaw staff in our opening ceremony, followed by a picnic lunch and running the first 500 meters on one of our jigger machines. While we still have a long way to go to realize the many stages of our dream for an environmentally sound dyeing process with water filtration and treatment, proper environmental standards and high end quality specifically for work with GOTS certified organic cottons, we are pleased with the progress so far. Now having completed phase 1 of this process, we will be engaged in developing the second phase including water treatment.     [gallery type="rectangular" ids="471,469,470,468,473,472,467,466,476,475,474"]

Fit/Sizing/Care

Fit

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.
