Indigo dyed hand woven cotton scarf S_189
by Indian Artisan
This fine and lightweight scarf was woven in the complicated discontinuous supplementary weft technique by Rasilaben, a young woman in a village in western Gujarat, India. This technique is a specialty of the Kutch area and is created by inserting extra (supplementary) threads to create the motifs.
Rasilaben has also made strong chain stitched braids across the scarf, finishing them with twisted cords, and finished the ends with tiny tassels.
I bought this directly from the weaver. It measures 55 x 208cm and is a Fair Trade product.
