Description

Our handwoven flax linen table top products are designed to create an interplay of colors. Each of our runners and napkins comes in a combination of three yarn colors that are hand-dyed and then strung in a combination on the warp and weft. Handweaving different thread colors into patterns is a much more laborious process than weaving with a single color, but is a valuable component, given the beauty of the final product. Dyed with Azo-free, low-impact dyes. Packaged with a belly band, it makes an excellent party favor and host or hostess gift.

Handwoven fabrics are meticulously planned and created requiring a complex estimation, depending on the design. Handweaving is unforgiving: mistakes cannot be reversed as weaves can't be undone.

Matching runners are available to purchase separately.

A Fair Trade product. Handmade by artisans in India.

How It's Made

Rural weavers from Northern India have skillfully crafted this product on hand-operated looms. The artisans carefully string cotton yarn vertically upon the loom to create the warp. They then weave horizontal interlacing threads (weft), creating expressive, decorative patterns. Depending on the design, either a single color in the warp and a different color in the weft or several different colors both in the warp and weft are strung. Determination of how closely the warp yarns will be placed next to each other, precise calculation of where the next color thread will be incorporated (e.g. 1-inch stripes,) and careful calculation for minimal loom waste are some other steps of the process. Hand weaving is unforgiving as once woven, weaves can't be undone.
