This fair made sustainable scarf comes from the weaving village of Bhuj in Gujarat, India. The cotton used is native and is locally grown organically.
Asian cotton is rare in India. About 97 percent of the cotton is American modified cotton. Through small-scale projects, some farmers switch to sustainable, organic cultivation of indigenous cotton. The cotton of this scarf is Kala cotton, a sort that occurs naturally in Gujarat and can grow well on dry, even saline (!) soil. Extra watering is not necessary and persticides are not used.
The scarf has been dyed in a light bluw colout with home made natural indigo. The indigo plants ferment in a vessel and can last for many years. Some barrels are 4 to 9 years old.
