The Half Moon Studio Set is wood-block printed by hand with a simple half moon design on a traditional Bengali home spun, hand woven, fine weight Tussar Silk Khadi fabric. 


Sustainable Wild Silk also known as Forest Silk is so named in relation to the natural environment it is reared and crafted in.

The names Eri Silk, Tussar Silk or Matka silk are also used depending on the moth genus.

This Tussar Silk cloth is lightweight, fine and textured.  

It will arrive to you feeling quite starched but softens and drapes beautifully with wear.


The cut of the Smock Top is wide and loose in the traditional artist smock style.

The shorts designed to sit loose on the waist or low on the hips.

As such there is one free size option available.

Top fits UK size 6 - 26. Shorts size 6 -18


There are fine gathered pleats at the neck and wrists.

The fabric will soften beautifully and should be hand washed cool or dry cleaned to prevent colour fading.


The flat measurements of the garments are approximately:

Smock Top :

Chest 78cm

Cuff width 14cm

V neck 22cm

Length 58 cm

Hem width 82 cm



waist 45cm open drawstring

Leg legth 32cm


Indian hand-woven, hand block printed, fine silk:

  • Hand wash or Dry Clean
  • 100% Silk
  • Made in Kolkata India
  • Variations/unevenness in the cloth may be viewed as the beautiful traces of the craftsperson's hand and are welcomed by Poetwear as the individual character of each piece.
  • The Poetwear label is hand stiched. The workshop asked for this detail as the embroidery is traditionally womans work whereas screenprinting work would go to the men.
