" Dupatta"Cotton and Silk Shawl Shawl

" Dupatta"Cotton and Silk Shawl Shawl

Regular price £25.00
90% COTTON and 10% SILK

Sometimes known as a "Dupatta" shawl.
These wonderful shawls come to us from ‘Soul Weaves’, India.  All are woven in natural fibres - using 90% hand woven cotton and 10% pure silk. These hand woven fabrics are dyed and hand embellished to create the perfect throw-on for summer; they are lightweight, airy, soft and elegant and can be used whenever you want to make a statement, or just to change the look of a much loved outfit.  They would also make a wonderful Sarong.
The purity of the fibres, scrupulous weaving techniques and the fresh colours result in a durable yet delicate accessory.

All the shawls are lovingly hand woven in the Shantipur region of West Bengal by a cluster of  artisans working with ‘Soul Weaves’, a community, closer to a family than a business.

Within each impeccably produced piece, there is the struggle to keep hand loom traditions alive, in a country fast embracing mass produced textiles.   Each hand made piece provides income security for the artisan and an international-quality product at a fair price.

Please treat your shawl kindly.  We would recommend dry cleaning.
