This lightweight cotton scarf is hand woven with subtle ikat patterning. Perfect to wear with your denim jeans this summer.
In India, ikat is a traditional resist-dye technique. The artisans are skilled at creating intricate patterning, this one having subtle weft-ikat dyed in denim blue.
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. This is important in a country where heavy pollution from coal fuel is often the cost of progress.
