As the end of the lovely summer season draws upon us, there is no better way to celebrate it than with some lightweight, summery tops and dresses. That is why we at Tjori have launched a collection of lovely schiffli outfits in pure cotton. Crafted in shades of basic black and white, these outfits have been enhanced with the beautiful schiffli treatment to give them a lacy look, making them perfect for formal as well as casual events.
Schiffli is the name given to a form of embroidery done using a special schiffli machine. This type of embroidery is also known as schiffli lace treatment, since the end product is a type of lace.
A unique characteristic of schiffli embroidery is the holes or perforations in the cloth that give it the look of lace. Schiffli embroidery is done on chemically-treated fabrics that disintegrate after the embroidery is done. This gives the remaining fabric the look of an intricate lace. This method of embroidery was developed in the 19th century.
Though it has a long history, schiffli lace treatment is still very popular today to create elegant clothes. The products created through this treatment are durable and long-lasting, as well as easy to maintain, making them popular as well as better for the environment.
In India, most schiffli making today is done in the state of Gujarat.
Crafted in pure cotton
Tjori's collection of schiffli apparel has been crafted in pure, natural cotton. This makes them the perfect way to celebrate the end of summers and the incoming of the pleasant fall season. The outfits in this collection have been created using premium and natural cotton, very different from the synthetic, mass-manufactured fabrics that have flooded the market today. All the outfits in this collection are lined with pure cotton as well.
Something for everyone
Out Schiffli Summers collection houses beautiful dresses, skirts, pants and tops. From beachy maxis to formal shirtdresses, knotted tops to fitted trousers, from flowy palazzos to simple shift dresses, there is something here to appeal to everyone. The dresses sport pleasing details like wrap necklines and knotted backs, while the tops are perfect for everyone from college to office-goers. We have used simple, solid colours in this collection to let the fabric and the lacy effect take the centrestage.
For this collection, we have used tasteful colours like pure white, ivory and black to create pieces that are as elegant as they are durable. While the whites are perfect for summer dates and garden parties, the black outfits are ideal for dinners and evening gatherings. Moreover, some dresses have been enhanced with statement-making elements like bows and front knots in contrasting colours.
