How It's Made

This striking product is hand-woven by an artisan cooperative from Northeast India which employs indigenous women. These artisans are skilled at creating intricately woven stylish pieces that incorporate traditional design elements and skills. Cotton fabric is woven by women using frame looms. These looms are crafted fusing bamboo and other locally available materials. The artisan carefully strings cotton threads colored with vibrant azo-free (eco-friendly) dyes vertically upon the loom. Handwoven fabrics are meticulously planned and created requiring a complex estimation: depending on the design, either a single color in the warp and a different color in the weft or several different colors both in the warp and weft are strung; determination of how closely the warp yarns will be placed next to each other; precise calculation of where the next color thread will be incorporated (e.g. 1 inch stripes;) and careful calculation for minimal loom waste are some other steps of the process. Handweaving is unforgiving as once woven, weaves canít be undone. This fabric is tailored into the wide range of products we carry from this cooperative, such as pillow covers, scarves, napkins, bags, photo frames, table runners, and more. Because of the range of products, less fabric is wasted as smaller pieces are used to fashion other products.
