This lightweight shawl is made of Khadi Cotton; cotton that has been handspun into yarn using a spinning wheel, before being handwoven to create the classic macro-stripe pattern. The superfine weave offers a light and airy drape.
The art of handweaving in Bengal is an ancient tradition. In some villages, one can hear flying shuttles of handlooms as you pass each and every dwelling down a village street. Maiwa works in collaboration with village artisans to encourage longevity of the ancient art and also commissions pieces and materials that can be made in no other way.
