This lightweight scarf flows with irregular blue and white striping, an easy combination to accessorize your summer wardrobe.
The artisan who hand wove this scarf played with patterning in weft striping, giving attention to fine detailing along the edges including subtle use of silver.
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.
