This hand woven cotton scarf from India is a welcome addition to your summer wardrobe.
Playful, supplementary geometric motifs of circles, triangles, and squares frame the lower and neck area of this lightweight, cotton scarf. The same accent colors are repeated in a subtle striped pattern along the bottom and side edges. A 3″ twisted fringe is the finishing touch. This piece wears well as a scarf but is wide enough to wear as a shawl.
Focusing on handweaving, Indigo Handlooms helps create jobs in rural areas of India where energy for manufacture is lacking or unreliable. With a good market, an average weaver can support an average of eight family members. In addition to preserving fine textile skills and traditions, handweaving has a very low-carbon footprint.
