Viyella Shirts

Viyella Madras

Viyella Madras plaid fabrics are light-weight 2/60’s 100% cotton fabrics.

Madras-woven yarn has an intriguing history that began in, you guessed it, Madras, India over 800 years ago. To this day, it remains hand-dyed, handwoven, with both sides bearing the same pattern. What’s more, to be truly authentic, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission stipulates that the fabric must come from Madras (now Chennai), India.

Jump ahead to modern day, and for those who have experienced Madras fabric, it’s the ultimate softness and breathability that make it a must-have summer garment. It’s a versatile, every day, shirt, and in keeping with the market trend toward more color, the new Madras patterns feature more vibrant shades of orange, pink, lavender, green and yellow. And with so many colors in one shirt, pairing is a breeze, whether tucked with khakis and a naval blazer, or untucked with a bathing suit. Sum it up in three words: authentic, ultra-soft, classic.

Madras plaid fabrics have been used for apparel and fashion for centuries, making them the perfect addition to any wardrobe.
