House of Wandering Silk - Cotton Khadi Scarf
The Story: No machine has been used in the creation of this scarf; only human skill and ingenuity. It is the result of a lengthy process, whereby cotton fibres are carefully handspun and hand woven by rural Bengali weavers. This delicate and lightly textured fabric is known as khadi and maintains the intrinsic properties of cotton normally damaged during the machine-spinning process.
Please show it love by gently hand washing and not soaking.
Kantha, the stitch found in this scarf, is used traditionally in West Bengal on light, quilted blankets made for the home from recycled cotton saris.
Scarf dimensions are approx - 55cm x 200cm
