This shawl has been handwoven, creating the unique striped pattern. The cotton warp and linen weft offers a linen-like hand with the softness of cotton.
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.
