Description

Our checkered, handwoven cotton napkins involve the interlacing of multiple different thread colors from the warp and the weft. Soft and highly absorbent, these are a practical way to reduce consumption of disposable paper napkins. Packaged with a belly band and a hanger, 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. Hand weaving is unforgiving: mistakes cannot be reversed as weaves can't be undone.

A Fair Trade product. Handmade by artisans in India.

How It's Made

Indigenous women weavers from Eastern India have skillfully crafted this product on hand-operated frame looms. These looms are made using bamboo and other locally available materials. 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.
