A Fair Trade product. Handmade by artisans in India.

How It's Made

This textile is produced on hand-operated looms, one of the oldest methods of textile production. Handweaving involves interlinking a set of vertical threads (warp) with a set of horizontal threads (weft,) meticulous planning and a complex estimation, depending on the design. In this fabric, two different yarn colors are used - one in the weft and the other in the warp.

Handwoven at a small weaving unit in Northern India by adult members of a community of physically challenged artisans, and their families. The work offers them employment, life skills training and an avenue for social acceptance.
