Naturally Dyed Bengal Weave Shawl - Wool - Cutch & Indigo

$98.95

This exquisite hand crafted textile celebrates the skills of the Bengali Artisans who created it; from the complexity of naturally dyeing wool yarns to the precise handweaving. Handwoven is so much more than simply beautiful cloth - it is an idea of cultural self-sufficiency with deep roots in the Indian identity.

We love how the wool in this scarf is soft to touch and warm on your skin. The beautiful natural dyes cutch & indigo play beautifully together as complimentary colours, blending through the body and separating into a layered colour blocked finish.
