Splash Recycled yarns with cool hues, from previous handloom orders, are threaded into the soft grey to bring a subtle flash. A wink of colour that reminds us spring is not far off.
This soft, cloudy palette is inspired by the cooler seasons in Bangladesh, a time of year when morning mists can linger and a splash of green breaks through!

Ethically minded designers & makers create with total peace of mind using our Shunno collection of zero footprint fabrics. Shunno in Bangla means zero because the non-dyed 100% recycled yarn is handwoven, by fair trade weavers, in growing craft communities that care for their environment.
In short, this collection produces zero toxicity, zero waste and zero carbon, so that together we respect weavers, enjoy their beautiful fabrics and stop trashing our planet!
DESIGN OPTIONS: This fabric is skillfully handwoven on a traditional 2 shaft frame loom and so plain weave is the base for every fabric. The excitement starts when you think about different thicknesses of yarn to create texture, numerous colours to create pattern, resist dye techniques before and after weaving, plus, the potential of supplementary weft designs – it’s amazing!
Your personal fabric range is absolutely possible!

As we are committed to the Slow Fashion Movement, fabrics are transported by sea to leave a significantly smaller carbon footprint than sending by air and to keep the fabric cost down. If needed however, an air shipment can be arranged. We encourage you then to consider a carbon offset donation to your preferred organisation.
