This large organic cotton scarf is hand-woven according to traditional motifs in Bhuj (Gujarat), India. The coloring with indigo is made by the weaver himself.
The cotton used is the so-called Kala cotton. A species that occurs naturally in Gujarat. Because the cotton is fully adapted to local conditions, it can easily be grown organically. It is also a species that can only be spun by hand. Factories are set on American cotton. Native, Indian cotton has a shorter fiber. The great thing about this sustainable cotton is that it gets softer over time.
Indigo is a beautiful blue dye and is handmade by the weaver. It requires craftsmanship to allow the indigo plants to ferment in barrels (sometimes many years) and then to immerse the cotton yarns in the fabric long (or short) enough for the right color.
The scarf has lovely tassels woven into the fabric.
