Fairtrade cotton scarf made with 100% soft voile Indian cotton
Handmade by artisans from minority communities located in the dry desert climate of western Rajasthan, India. The shibori art form has been passed down to them through generations. This small group of artisans works in their in-house workshops. Women do the binding & tying and work from within their homes. Men do the dyeing work.
Our Fairtrade partner has helped their craft to evolve to international level and have also made their processes more environmentally sustainable by sponsoring solar water heaters of heavy capacity. They now heat the water for dyeing by using solar energy instead of non-replenishable resources.
