Local seeds create this soft sandy natural dye, a perfect backdrop to the narrow disappearing indigo stripe of ikat dyed yarn. This fine cotton drapes beautifully and is tightly woven for some fine tailoring detail too.
This fabric is a perfect example of the community work it takes to create handwoven fabrics. At least a dozen different tasks happen even before a weaver sits at the loom – each one employing multiple people. Wearing and using handmade anything ups the sustainable impact of our choices exponentially. Thank you!
