What can be better than a handspun, handwoven cotton scarf naturally-dyed in indigo?
The thick and thin character of handspun cotton gives a subtle textural effect; the weaving with light and dark indigo threads create the plaid pattern. All spinning and weaving is done by hand. The ends are finished with a twisted fringe. The more this scarf is washed, the softer it becomes.
