The Asha in Black over-dye is an effortless cotton-twill tote that will quickly become a warm-weather essential. This handbag features an all-over Kantha embroidery, embracing a traditional craft technique that originates in Eastern India. This bag has over 90 hours of handwork per piece incorporating a continuous running stitch with thick threads to produce elaborate patterns.

This item is a limited edition piece from the Merlette x Kurozome Rewear upcycling collaboration which was created in an effort to give new life to pieces from our archives.

Based in Kyoto, the 40-year-old company uses an ancient technique of 'shinkuro' to achieve a 'deep black' over-dye processing. The black dye takes to each fabric and design detail differently and the result is a one-of-a-kind piece highlighting the embroideries and threads that contrast the dyed fabric.
