This soft yellow stole is beautifully woven with vertical stripes that show a subtle open weave. This gives relief to the fabric.
The scarf is woven and dyed in the Dehradun region of India. Ghayur and Patricia live there. They have set up a social enterprise, Himalayan Weavers. They work with the local population in the many remote mountain villages. Women in the villages weave the scarves and color them with natural resources from their environment.
This scarf is dyed with so-called Tesu flowers (Butea Monosperma). These are the flowers of a medium-sized tree native to Southeast Asia. The tree blooms from January with spectacular vermilion red and orange flowers. The tree is also called the flame tree. All parts of the tree are used medicinally. The flowers are mainly used in medicines for skin problems.
