Each textile is a unique expression of the personality and creativity of each weaver, and just like the women, size and colours vary slightly, making each individual textile equally unique!
Care & Wash Instructions:
Natural dyes have a unique temperament and character. They are made from leaves, roots, barks and muds at the hands of master dyers. They age in a beautiful way when kept out of direct sunlight, which can increase fading. These textiles are best hand-washed separately with very mild, non-caustic soap in cool water. Dry flat in shade.
