Using only natural dyes, this handspun and handwoven cotton scarf features a striping pattern of indigo.
The thick and thin character of handspun cotton gives a subtle textural effect; the weaving with natural white and dark indigo threads create the stripe 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.
